Investments are now increasingly complex, given the sophistication of the sector and the variety of disciplines involved, and subject to a constantly changing legislative and regulatory framework (including the Alur law, the Pinel law, the Macron law, the law on energy transition for green growth and reform of contract law). They are also undergoing profound changes due to the effects of energy efficiency and smart connectivity imperatives, the contours of the building of tomorrow are being reshaped and the entirevalue chain, from a building’s design to its use, will be transformed. Leading-edge support is required, from a legal and tax perspective, to complete these highly sensitive investment projects in this rapidly-changing environment.
