We have found the whole team to be responsive, hard-working, knowledgeable, dedicated and extremely able.
Our real estate investment team has an established track record of providing comprehensive advice on complex real estate acquisitions, developments, sales and portfolio management.
Investments are often dealt with through specific types of real estate vehicles - whether single purpose, limited partnership or joint venture. We advise on a variety of ownership structures, identifying the most appropriate to meet your objectives, as well as on fundings and forward sales and purchases.
One of the critical factors for real estate investment clients is the relationship between landlord and tenant. We are experienced in all aspects of this area - our specialists deal not only with issues arising during lease negotiations but also those that occur during the currency of leases.
Our philosophy is to pay proper attention to all property management related issues to ensure asset value is not eroded. This philosophy is shared by the members of our real estate dispute resolution team who provide support when disputes arise and to prevent them happening unnecessarily.
Our real estate investment team works closely with the firm's specialist lawyers in the other real estate service groups as well as with members of the firm's sector teams. For further details, please click on the relevant links on the real estate and expertise pages.
