Real Estate Finance

Real estate has never been more global or complex than it is today. Whether advising on development or investment transactions, we understand that finance is critical to our client's success. 

Combining industry insight and practical legal experience, our global real estate finance team is at the forefront of helping our clients navigate a range of complex and high-profile real estate finance transactions, including investment, development, structured real estate financings, loan-on-loan, debt portfolio acquisitions, Sharia-compliant structures, and financings and refinancings of existing facilities. A number of these deals have involved work in multiple jurisdictions.

Whether advising on offices, retail, industrial, logistics, hotel, residential, or any type of building, we can help. 

Our integrated approach brings together lawyers experienced in banking, real estate, construction, planning, capital markets, insurance, real estate investment trusts (REITs), funds, and tax to provide a seamless service for our real estate clients. 

We develop creative solutions in the areas where you need us most.
