  3. Reinhart's Shumow Named to InBusiness Magazine's "40 Under 40"

MADISON – Reinhart real estate attorney Joseph D. Shumow has been named to InBusiness Magazine's "40 Under 40" list, published March 2. Each year, the publication's "40 Under 40" issue celebrates the success of rising young business stars in the Greater Madison area. Recipients are business or civic leaders who have demonstrated a firm commitment to the Madison region through board involvement, volunteerism or other activities.

As an attorney in Reinhart's real estate practice, Shumow represents developers, lenders, and tax credit allocators. Although his work is primarily related to the allocation and deployment of low-income housing tax credits and new markets tax credits, he also works on more traditional real estate and financing work. He is recognized as a leader in the industry, having been recently quoted by the Capital Times and published in the national tax credit publication, Novogradac, for his positions on historic tax credit issues facing the state of Wisconsin.

Prior to joining Reinhart, Shumow was the senior staff counsel for the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA). In that role, he led real estate financing closings on behalf of WHEDA; worked on general corporate and commercial contracting matters; and coordinated closings for low-income housing tax credit and new markets tax credit investors who were investing in companies that received tax credit allocations from WHEDA or one of its subsidiaries.

Actively involved in the Madison community, Shumow is on the board of directors for Forward Theater Company (former Vice President), The Rodney Scheel House Foundation (former President and current Vice President), and the Jewish Federation of Madison (Vice President). Shumow is an adjunct lecturer at UW Law School, where he teaches Real Estate Transactions II. He is a frequent guest lecturer, including several presentations to the Madison Commercial Brokers Group and the Wisconsin School of Business.
