Real Estate Funds

Allen & Overy has extensive expertise in structuring and establishing real estate funds.

In recent years, as real estate has become a fully-fledged alternative asset class for funds alongside private equity funds and hedge funds, we have advised on some of the largest and most complex fund structures, delivering to clients imaginative and intelligent solutions that meet their commercial needs.

Our real estate fund clients include some of the world's largest asset managers and private equity real estate fund managers. We provide advice in relation to various commercial real estate funding and joint venture structures using onshore and offshore partnerships and corporates, eg Luxembourg FCPs, SICAVs, SICAFs, and Jersey and Guernsey corporates. 

We act in all the areas that you would encounter during the life-cycle of a real estate fund, from fund formation to real estate, regulatory, tax and corporate advice through to exit strategies.

Our international network of lawyers in the real estate funds group allows us quickly to solve cross-border issues - with offices in the majority of the world's major financial centres, we can provide you with a choice of location as to where you would like your work to be managed.
