Real Estate

CMS AACS’s real estate practice, also through its network of European offices, provides advice on the transfer and lease (including financial issues) of residential and commercial real estate, in Italy and abroad. Besides drafting and negotiating contracts, our experience also includes performing due diligence reviews of commercial properties and, jointly with our tax department, preparing structures aiming at minimizing transfer and income taxes.

The expertise developed by the firm over the years in drafting and negotiating construction and construction-related contracts, enables CMS AACS to deliver our clients - which include owners, operators to construction companies and sub-contractors - a full array of professional services. The long-established relationship with clients from various industries has allowed our lawyers to have a clear understanding of the different environmental issues that arise in connection with their activities.
