Real Estate Delivered Better


Investing in, developing, occupying and funding real estate assets has never been more complex.  The asset class has established its place as a key element of the investment strategies of many of the world’s most significant international corporates and funds who are looking well beyond their domestic borders to fulfil their commercial needs. 

Demands for new real estate development around the world, whether commercial, industrial, residential, or infrastructure related have brought a new set of international players to the market.

Our real estate sector specialists are here to support you on all types of transactions and projects from single assets to multi-jurisdictional portfolio deals and urban regeneration projects, across all asset classes including offices, logistics, retail, build to rent, hotels & leisure, infrastructure and energy. In a rapidly evolving world, we can also help you navigate your way through ESG, technology and data issues as they impact your real estate interests.

With local experts and a global view, our team is uniquely well placed to assess market trends and anticipate the effects of legal and regulatory developments so we can help you make the right strategic decisions for your real estate assets.
