Real Estate Finance lawyers

The real estate finance market has undergone significant change in recent years, with increased regulation, the entrance of more categories of lenders and changes to documentation. At CMS, we understand the challenges that these changes pose for you, having acted for lenders, developers, borrowers, sponsors, hedge counterparties and others on a wide range of investment and development transactions.

We helped to create the industry standard documentation on which most deals are based, and have helped clients like you fund assets such as commercial and residential real estate, ground rent investments, hotels, healthcare assets, theatres, logistics portfolios, shopping centres, house building and supermarket developments.

They are very easy to work with, proactive and personable. We have excellent communications with them and they help matters go smoothly.
Chambers UK, 2016

As an international law firm with cross-border transactional experience, our cohesive international team is able to deliver complex trans-European property portfolio financings.

Our clients include funds, property companies, family offices, universities and UK and international banks and financial institutions, and we are experienced in acting for both senior and mezzanine lenders.
