For over 20 years, Todd has advised many of the world’s largest investment banks, investment funds, real estate partnerships, asset managers, loan originators and servicers, REITs, non-US investors, and tax-exempt organizations on the tax aspects of their US and non-US investment and business decisions. With extensive experience in the tax aspects of structured finance transactions and other complex financial instruments, he has structured, managed, and advised on thousands of real estate-related transactions and other tax matters, including over US$500 billion of REMIC, debt-for-tax, and other securitization, financing and fund-formation deals. He has also created innovative investment and securitization structures, as well as a first-of-its-kind FinTech US tax legal opinion program called Season & Sell 2.0SM, designed for non-US investors in newly originated or recently modified US loans. Prior to joining Practus, Todd served as Senior Tax Partner leading US debt capital market tax matters for Dentons.
Todd is a man for all seasons. He enjoys playing tennis, playing the links and going for long distance runs along the ocean in the warm months and hitting the slopes in the cold months. But most of all, he enjoys spending time with his three children, Alexandra, Sonya, and Trevor.
