Our company was rebranded as LHP Capital, LLC in 2015 after operating for a number of years as Lawler Wood Housing, LLC. Phil Lawson, the company’s founder and current Chairman, previously served as CFO of Lawler Wood, one of Knoxville’s most successful development firms founded by Rodney Lawler and the late Pat Wood. Lawler Wood was a pioneer in HUD’s Section 8 program. When the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program was introduced, Lawson created a new business model for Lawler Wood to improve and develop more affordable housing. That Lawler Wood business segment eventually became Lawler Wood Housing and, subsequently, LHP Capital. The company continues to actively pursue development opportunities in affordable housing as well as other areas of commercial real estate.
