Our property lawyers specialise and are experienced in the legal issues and commercial challenges involved in dealing with private equity structures, joint ventures, limited partnerships, unit trusts, REITs and other co-investment arrangements.

Whether the underlying real estate transaction is an income producing investment, a portfolio acquisition, a mortgage portfolio transaction, a workout, a development project, a sale and leaseback or a trading transaction, the appropriate structure can be tailored to suit your deal – taking into account local market and currency issues, transfer tax, accounting treatment and risk allocation.

Our real estate lawyers are experienced in advising on the full life-cycle of corporate real estate structures, from the initial choice of structure, tax optimisation, creation of the vehicle, funding, the acquisition and asset or project management through to exit strategy.
