Real Estate Delivered Better


The growing trend towards high value, complex and tax driven structures for both direct and indirect investment has led to the increased sophistication of transactions in the real estate sector.

Our corporate real estate team offers the level of sector focussed corporate support needed to execute the most demanding transactions and document the most complex joint ventures.  Integration with specialist tax and finance capability embedded in the wider real estate team gives our clients access to the necessary expertise in a seamless way.

Our team's exclusive real estate focus gives us the capability to put together bespoke structures for transactions, from funding, acquisitions and disposals, holding and participation arrangements, joint venture and development through to exit mechanisms.

Working on market leading transactions gives us access to the latest views on deal trends, and insight into what the market considers commercially acceptable – allowing us to smooth the path to deal delivery for you.
