Quin C. Seiler

Competing is a part of life. Winning is all about preparation, toughness, and agility.

My Approach

I grew up playing team sports, primarily soccer, and I strongly believe that litigation is, by definition, a team sport.  I join the team of each client and work with them to identify and clarify the problems, determine their goals, and then prepare, strategize, and build their case.  While I do everything I can to help my clients head off issues before they become full-blown lawsuits, sometimes litigation is necessary.  Regardless of the playing field and the legal issues, the rules are always the same—you can’t cut corners on preparation and you attack the issue from all angles.

My career at Winthrop has allowed me to participate in litigation involving a wide range of industries including contract disputes, real estate and construction, and working with financial institutions and other commercial enterprises related to business disputes.  One focus of my practice is on disputes between partners/members who own low income housing tax credit (LIHTC) properties.  I represent real estate developers, including for-profit and non-profit developers, in disputes that arise near the end of the tax credit year-15 Compliance Period.  These disputes primarily involve the limited partner’s exit from the partnership and the multitude of issues that can arise as a result, including, but not limited to: disputes over purchase options, call and put rights, and rights of first refusal; appraisal disputes; qualified contract disputes; refinance issues; fair market value disputes, and many others.  I advise my clients on their rights and obligations under their partnership agreement and applicable law to try and resolve conflicts on the front end.  When you choose to work with me, you will always know where you stand and I will guide you to an out-of-court resolution whenever possible.  However, when litigation is necessary, I aggressively defend my client’s interests and fight for a successful outcome.

Outside of work I am always active and on-the-go.  I was a Division 1 All-American soccer player while completing my bachelor’s degrees, and I am now a triathlete and have qualified for and competed at the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships.  I also live on a lake and love to hang out in the water, water skiing, paddle boarding, and wake surfing.
