Global Reach, Personal Touch
Our global real estate group is renowned for first-class legal skills and market knowledge. An integrated, cross-border group, we bring client-focused innovation to bear in pioneering new deal structures and in delivering legal services. As a Hogan Lovells client, you gain access to a single firmwide team that delivers seamless service on large and complex real estate deals, drawing on skills held within our corporate, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), hotels, environmental, projects, funds, planning, employment, tax, and disputes teams. 

Transatlantic Real Estate Capability
We have almost 400 partners and lawyers working with the global real estate industry, with offices in the United States, Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Our global presence enables us to provide you with a fully integrated and efficient service, irrespective of the jurisdictions involved. We draw on the legal skills and know-how resident in all our worldwide offices, making our team particularly adept in supporting cross-border transactions. We aim, too, to strike a balance between the pragmatic and the legalistic.

One World, One Team, One Choice
Many firms claim to combine exceptional legal skills with innovative or lateral thinking. In the case of Hogan Lovells’ Real Estate team, our clients vouch for us. We consistently rank as a leading practice in the Legal 500 and Chambers surveys of top law firms. We achieve this recognition by integrating with clients in order to understand their business objectives. Our innovative and value-added legal solutions — which range from secondee placements to our award-winning outsourcing concept, used to deliver IT-based client service products in the United Kingdom — are tailored to meet each client’s individual requirements.
