Continuing Care Retirement Communities

Hawkins has substantial experience in financing  facilities along the “continuum of care” (between independent senior living and licensed nursing homes) that is burgeoning in response to demographic trends and need.  Both housing and health care market participants have expanded the scope and extent of their long-term care sector activities.  The Hawkins senior living team has, likewise, grown to assist stand-alone owner/operators – and larger systems – with all of the legal issues presented in financing continuing care retirement communities, including bond, tax, corporate, nonprofit, real estate and disclosure matters.  Our experience as bond counsel and underwriters’ counsel in the continuing care retirement community sector includes over 240 issues with a principal amount exceeding $5 billion.
