Back to Real Estate

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.

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.

“The team are very responsive and proactive and act as an extra limb. They help us practically and with all aspects of the deals.”
