Euchung represents hedge funds, private equity funds and other investors in their real estate investments through equity and debt investment structures. He advises clients making partnership, limited liability company and other joint venture investments, including the formation of real estate funds and the public offering of real estate interests, as well as in bond, first mortgage, mezzanine financing and other loan transactions (both on behalf of borrowers and lenders). In addition, he counsels his clients on all aspects of the real estate investment process, including the purchase, sale, leasing and management of real estate. Over the years, he has had substantial experience with all asset classes of real estate, including office buildings, retail malls, mixed-use developments, and hotel and motels.

Euchung has negotiated and structured complex workout arrangements for real estate transactions, and, in the past, has represented clients purchasing and selling par and distressed assets in the secondary loan trading market.

In the past, Euchung’s clients have also included statutory boards for the Republic of Singapore, state pension funds, start-up companies from Asia, domestic and foreign banks and other financial institutions, foreign investors in the U.S., and real estate development companies.

Sample recent transactions include the following:

  • Acquisition and financing of multiple supermarket-anchored neighborhood shopping centers for a Connecticut-based real estate fund
  • Acquisition, development, financing (including public financing), and leasing of multiple medical office buildings (MOBs) for a New York-based real estate fund, including, the largest MOB transaction in the U.S. for 2013
  • Acquisition and financing of multiple hotel, residential condominium, office and warehouse properties for a New York based hedge fund
  • Leasing for multiple office buildings in New York and Connecticut, including leases for multi-floor tenancies, for landlords and tenants

Euchung is the foil and epee coach for Greenwich High School in Connecticut, having coached the team through several championship seasons, and was previously the Co-President of the Fordham LL.M. Alumni Association’s North American Chapter, and the Chair of the Board of Directors, for the Chinese Language School of Fairfield County.
