Real States

With volatility in the global economy and the emergence of new real estate investors such as insurance companies and pension funds, the commercial real estate market has become much more competitive. Evolving regulatory requirements in key real estate markets and rapidly changing economic environments have made it more challenging for multinational companies and other investors to manage their real estate portfolios.

Many lawyers, our Global Real Estate Group assists institutional and private equity investors, multinationals, banks, hotels and REIT with all of their global real estate needs, from buying, selling and leasing the property to financing and constructing major projects. As a one-stop shop for real estate legal services across key markets, we develop world-class transactional strategies, provide corporate real estate services, and advise on the global data center real estate development and management.

  • How We Can Help

  • 1. Construction

  • 2. Hotels, Resorts & Tourism

  • 3. Leasing


Many years of experience advising clients on major construction projects, we work on the financing, contract law, employment, planning, zoning, insolvency and insurance aspects of these projects. Our real estate lawyers work across borders and practice areas to advise owners and contractors on everything from design and feasibility to project structure and dispute resolution. The projects we work on include commercial offices, shopping centers, industrial plants, hotels, and greenfield construction.

Hotel, Resorts & Tourism

  • Global hotel industry revenue is predicted to reach US$550 billion in 2016, up 20% from annual revenues just five years ago. Europe and the Asia Pacific have the highest hotel occupancy rates in the world, and Millennials are expected to overtake Baby Boomers as the dominant consumer group in the tourism industry by 2017.

  • As leading legal advisors in key tourist destinations across the Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Americas, we help hotel developers, operators, financiers, investors and service providers capitalize on opportunities in the hospitality industry while complying with regulatory requirements and minimizing local market risk.

  • Ranked number one for global real estate services by Euromoney for seven years running, we work on some of the world's largest cross-border hotel transactions and advise clients on all aspects of ownership, management, operation, development and financing of hotel and resort properties.

  • Our one-stop-shop legal services include timeshare and fractional ownership schemes, franchising, foreign investment regulation, licensing and regulatory approvals, employment and industrial relations, environmental and planning issues, M&A, taxation, and stamp duty, transfer pricing, information technology, trade practices and dispute resolution.


  • We advise landlords and tenants on all aspects of commercial leasing, from handling lease negotiations and drafting lease agreements to assist with building management issues, including obtaining approval for deeds of mutual covenants and project sales. Our experience covers site acquisition, office and retail complex leases, sale and leaseback structures, tenders and auctions, conveyancing and mortgages, and management contracts.

Mergers and Acquisitions

  • M&A is often the quickest, most efficient way for companies to transform their businesses, whether it be through purchasing or divesting products, service lines, technology or supply chains, as well as entering or exiting particular markets. Because of the pressures of globalization, companies around the world will continue to pursue these transactions to remain profitable and innovative regardless of market trends and economic fluctuations.

Real State Development, Planning & Land Use

  • Our lawyers advise developers, lenders, operators, regulators and national and international investors on real estate development, planning, and land use issues. Using our specialized expertise on these matters across more than 40 countries, we advise clients on all stages of real estate construction and development, including structuring, documenting, negotiating joint ventures, and preparing permits and approvals that are compliant with local land use, public law, and environmental regulations.

Real State Finance

  • Our Real Estate Finance Practice is a dedicated team within our Global Banking & Finance and Global Real Estate practices. Working across borders and practice areas, we advise arrangers and financial institutions, as well as borrowers including developers, funds, and REITs.

  • Our expertise includes complex cross-border property and portfolio financing transactions, sales of performing and non-performing loan portfolios, loan modifications, refinancings, workouts, loan syndications, and participation. We also work closely with our tax colleagues to provide structuring advice.

  • The quality of our work is reflected in the number of clients that seek our counsel on significant deals and the recognition our team receives within the legal industry. We recently advised ING Bank and Landesbank Baden-Württemberg on the GBP400-million refinancing of Salesforce Tower, formerly known as Heron Tower, in London.
