Real Estate & Construction Lawyers

We know the world of the investor, the developer, the tenant, the construction consortium or the asset manager like no other. Our advice therefore always makes the difference you need and stimulates your entrepreneurship. Evidently we know local markets from inside and out, but we feel just as much at home in international markets. You will profit from this to the fullest. Since you are our main point of focus, we will manage our international teams from the country where you are located. You will have the guarantee that we have all the expertise that you need in order to make a difference in the real estate market.

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. With over 450 lawyers in 33 countries, we give consistent legal advice across borders, coordinated from your home market. Whether you are in the retail, residential, hotels, infrastructure, care home, office, logistics, renewable energy or student accommodation sectors, we have the specialists to help.

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.

Significant clients: ASR, BAM, Ballast Nedam, Borghese, Bouwfonds.
