Our real estate capability across Europe and beyond


This brochure gives you a brief overview of our real estate experience and capabilities. Known for the quality of our pan-European work, CMS’ real estate clients also benefit from that same quality and expertise in emerging markets outside Europe.

Guiding you through the issues
We also see it as our role to keep you abreast of issues that will impact your business across Europe and beyond. A few examples of where we can help are:

  • Standardised documentation – we are leading the way in the development of a standard European lease that can be adapted to each relevant jurisdiction, allowing a comprehensive comparison of different investments – a saving of time and money.
  • Real estate investment values – to achieve a true comparison of real estate investment values across Europe, transaction costs and taxes need to be taken into consideration. To help our clients, we have produced a pocketsized guide comparing these costs across many European countries.
  • Structuring of funds and tax issues across Europe and beyond – we can advise you on the main tax issues when you are looking to invest in or build real estate in a particular jurisdiction.
  • Seminars – CMS firms regularly host real estate-related seminars on pertinent investment issues. We will ensure that you are invited to any future seminars that may be of interest.
