Real estate development
We have a strong ‘traditional’ real estate practice and our team has advised on many of the market’s significant development transactions.
We partner our clients through the legal and commercial issues surrounding all stages of a development project, from site acquisition and assembly, due diligence, forming the initial relationships with funders and development partners, construction procurement (with highly knowledgeable advice from our construction group) through to completion, letting and/or sale of the completed project.
We’ve acted for all key stakeholders in development projects: owners, developers, contractors, funders, purchasers and tenants.
Our advice ranges from construction and planning to urban development and environment tax. We invest heavily in understanding your industry and we use this knowledge to help you achieve your goals and overcome the unique challenges development projects bring along.
In structuring development projects, as well as traditional partnerships and contractual joint ventures, we create innovative corporate structures, including foreign and domestic limited partnerships and side-by-side leasing, partnering and alliancing arrangements, to help satisfy our clients’ tax and management requirements.
