Real Estate Investments, Joint Ventures and Structures

We advise the world’s leading real estate investors on their most important real estate acquisitions, investments and disposals.

Described by clients as “indisputably brilliant on the very big transactions", we represent real estate owners, investors, investment banks, private equity houses, sovereign wealth funds and REITs.

Our in-depth knowledge of the real estate sector and close working relationships across our global network allow us to add value to our clients’ transactions with high-quality, practical and tax-effective legal advice. Our partners and associates are not just skilled in real estate matters. They also have wide experience of indirect real estate acquisitions, negotiating corporate-style documentation and providing advice on joint ventures and structuring that is drafted within a real estate context.

A key part of our advice involves looking at the associated corporate, financing and tax aspects in any transaction. Many of the real estate acquisitions we handle are actually corporate acquisitions (both onshore and offshore) to maximise tax efficiency. Our team is well versed in negotiating these share or unit sale and purchase agreements.

These agreements are often structured offshore in jurisdictions such as Luxembourg, where we have an office, or Jersey, Guernsey, the Cayman Islands or the British Virgin Islands, where we have strong relationships with leading local law firms.
