Lauren Campbell is of counsel in Ice Miller’s Public & Municipal Finance Practice Group. She focuses her practice on structuring complex real estate transactions that generate low income housing tax credits under IRC § 42. Lauren has significant experience representing syndicators and equity investors in connection with the development and financing of affordable housing transactions. Such transactions often involve many layers of financing, including tax-exempt bonds, HUD- and FHA-insured loans, non-profit and government grants and federal and state rental subsidies.

Lauren also has considerable experience representing fund sponsors in the formation and structuring of multi-investor and proprietary investment funds formed to syndicate low income housing tax credits, as well as other federal and state tax credits and benefits.

Lauren is passionate about finding creative solutions for clients in a variety of situations, whether bringing a transaction to close or building or maintaining a long-term relationship. She focuses on understanding a client’s overall business goals and risk tolerance. Using those as a guide, she counsels clients in identifying opportunities and assessing risks involved in specific transactions and prepares and negotiates transaction documentation accordingly. She believes the most effective legal counsel should consider all aspects of a transaction simultaneously, from detailed provisions of specific documents to a client's overarching business goals.
