Real Estate Finance and Workouts

Our German Real Estate Finance (REF) practice, consisting of German and English law qualified lawyers, is the leading REF practice in Germany.

We act on all aspects of real estate finance, including mortgage loans, both senior and mezzanine origination, loans to be refinanced by German covered bonds (Pfandbriefe), development finance, project and infrastructure finance, real estate structured finance as well as MBS origination and securitisation, portfolio deals, sale and lease-back structures, share and asset deals, loan sales (especially non-performing loans) and investment fund structures.

A further focus of our REF practice is on the restructuring of deals in the real estate sector, in particular CMBS restructurings and workouts. Our integrated team is highly specialised and combines structured finance know-how with an in-depth knowledge of related insolvency issues.

Our REF practice is an integral part of our Alternative Investments Group. As such, we contribute asset expertise and market intelligence in real estate finance for all our clients which invest in alternative asset classes. A particular focus lies on seamlessly combining our finance advice with advice on regulatory, tax and corporate law aspects.

Our clients include leading Pfandbrief banks, international credit institutions, insurers and pension scheme providers, as well as institutional investors, private equity firms, housing companies, asset management firms, real estate developers and real estate funds. In the field of Alternative Investments, we act for clients including infrastructure funds and private equity funds, asset managers, banks, hedge funds, insurance companies and pension funds, as well as companies and corporate groups whose activities focus on alternative assets.
