Real Estate Lawyers

As an investor, developer, occupier, construction consortium or asset manager, your real estate deals are executed to tight deadlines within complex local legal systems. If, for example, your property assets cross international markets, you face issues based on differing real estate law as well as cultural and economic contexts. With over 450 lawyers in 33 countries, we give consistent legal advice across borders, coordinated from your home market. Whether you are in the retail, residential, hotels, infrastructure, care home, office, logistics, renewable energy or student accommodation sectors, we have the specialists to help.

Through decades of experience of doing deals across Europe, our multi-jurisdictional teams adhere to the same templates, processes and standards, including project management. This means we can deploy specialist teams to advise you immediately, irrespective of where the real estate assets are. If you are launching or operating a real estate fund or setting up a real estate related joint venture, our funds and corporate experts can give you country-specific support. This approach allows us to guide your tax, planning, debt financing, construction and management issues in addition to your traditional real estate portfolio and property management work.

Our local team has a wide experience in the structuring, drafting and negotiation of acquisition/divestiture of residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial real estate assets, as well as construction of industrial plants. Additionally the team provides advices on financing and commercialization of real estate assets. .
