Atkins also works frequently with other conventional and subsidized financing sources such as HOME funds, Affordable Housing Program (AHP) funds, Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), and tax-exempt bond financing, as well as other financing programs from HUD, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and USDA Rural Development. Additionally, he is outside general counsel to the Alabama Affordable Housing Association (AAHA), which is the affordable housing trade association for the State of Alabama.

His experience in these types of projects includes licensing of intellectual property, negotiating distribution and agency agreements, mergers and acquisitions, forming Mexican and Argentine subsidiary entities for U.S. corporations, negotiating architectural services agreement, establishing warehouse operations and manufacturing plants in Mexico, and representing the owner in a legal dispute regarding power plant construction in Panama.
