Few industries are as influenced by fluctuating economic conditions as the trillion dollar real estate industry. In today’s competitive and ever-changing market, real estate stakeholders depend on legal counsel who understand the interwoven ownership, management and operational aspects of the industry and can help them formulate and drive strategic business and legal decisions.

We manage deals from all sides, and are able to leverage that experience on behalf of our clients.
We anticipate shifts in the industry and respond to market conditions with an approach that is both sophisticated and pragmatic. From formation of capital-raising vehicles to acquisitions and sales to transactions involving complex financing and joint-venture structures in multiple jurisdictions, our multidisciplinary team handles matters spanning the industry, including:
Our clients include real estate institutional investors; pension funds and advisers; private equity funds; opportunity funds; real estate investment trusts; commercial, investment and industrial banks; governments; statutory bodies; insurance companies; real estate holding companies; developers; and multinational corporations.
We work hard to understand our clients’ value drivers and goals so that we can tailor our services to their needs and help them solve complex problems—and spot opportunities—even in the most challenging market conditions. Clients point to this as a key strength that adds value to our work and contributes to their success.
Clients often bring us in early on in the planning stage of a deal to help them formulate and execute their strategic and financial objectives. We help clients synchronize those objectives with market conditions and emerging trends.
