Real Estate

As an investor, developer, occupier, construction consortium or asset manager, your real estate deals are executed to tight deadlines within complex local legal systems. If, for example, your property assets cross international markets, you face issues based on differing real estate law as well as cultural and economic contexts.

Whether you are in the retail, residential, hotels, infrastructure, office, logistics or renewable energy sectors, we have the specialists to help. CMS Luxembourg is advising local or foreign clients on all types of portfolios and on all key aspects of real estate transactions such as: risk assessment, structuring or negotiation. We also have a lot of experience in advising on real estate funds including the launch and operation of such funds. 

With over 450 lawyers in 33 countries, we give consistent legal advice across borders, coordinated from your home market. Through decades of experience of doing deals across Europe, our multi-jurisdictional teams adhere to the same templates, processes and standards, including project management. This means we can deploy specialist teams to advise you immediately, irrespective of where the real estate assets are.

If you are launching or operating a real estate fund or setting up a real estate related joint venture, our funds and corporate experts can give you country-specific support. This approach allows us to guide your tax, planning, debt financing, construction and management issues in addition to your traditional real estate portfolio and property management work.
