Our real es­tate cap­ab­il­ity at your ser­vice
We are over 800 qual­i­fied real es­tate law­yers work­ing in real es­tate and con­struc­tion, span­ning 46 coun­tries and 75 cit­ies. The CMS Real Es­tate prac­tice is the largest real es­tate spe­cial­ist team in Europe and one of the biggest world­wide. Cli­ents are at the heart of our busi­ness; we put you first.Our em­phas­is is not just on be­ing great tech­nic­al law­yers but also on un­der­stand­ing our cli­ents and their busi­ness; you and what makes you spe­cial; build­ing strong re­la­tion­ships with you; and bring­ing you our know­ledge and ex­per­i­ence.We have been act­ive in real es­tate in our mar­kets for dec­ades, so we un­der­stand the cul­ture, the eco­nom­ic con­text, the loc­al leg­al con­text and the his­tory. Many of our col­leagues have worked in-house or on second­ments to cli­ents to fur­ther de­vel­op their know­ledge of the real es­tate sec­tor. We know it in­side out. That is why we are known for be­ing strong on ex­e­cu­tion and provid­ing con­cise, com­mer­cial and prag­mat­ic ad­vice.Most of us fo­cus full time on real es­tate and serve a cli­ent base of de­velopers, own­ers, oc­cu­pi­ers, con­struc­tion con­sor­tia, as­set man­agers and in­vestors, among oth­ers across all as­set classes.CMS has the largest real es­tate teams across three ma­jor European jur­is­dic­tions – the UK, France and Ger­many – and is the largest real es­tate spe­cial­ist team in Europe and one of the biggest world­wide.We work ef­fi­ciently both loc­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally be­cause we know each oth­er: we meet face -to face, con­nect reg­u­larly, work on shared mat­ters, train to­geth­er and ad­here to the same stand­ards, tem­plates and pro­cesses, in­clud­ing pro­ject man­age­ment. That makes it easy to de­ploy mul­tidiscip­lin­ary teams – in­clud­ing funds, con­struc­tion, de­vel­op­ment, plan­ning, cor­por­ate, bank­ing, tax and in­solv­ency spe­cial­ists, or even not­ar­ies where it is al­lowed – with the sim­pli­city of a single point of con­tact, even at mul­tina­tion­al level.You will find out more about the great things we do for our cli­ents in the be­low sec­tion. Feel free to get in touch with the loc­al con­tacts for spe­cif­ic coun­try re­quests.
