Real Estate Finance

Our International Real Estate Finance lawyers act for lenders and borrowers, addressing a vast array of financing and structural requirements encompassing properties located throughout the world.

Drawn from lawyers with leading real estate experience, and fully supported by financial services and capital markets experience, the Real Estate Finance team handles all types of secured, conventional and participating loans (including bridge and mezzanine loans), sale and leaseback structures, securitization and project financings; and it acts regularly on the formation and structuring of asset-specific and pooled real estate funds and vehicles, limited partnerships, structured legal entities, and joint ventures of all kinds.

The team is focused exclusively on real estate and is consequently well placed to understand and deal with the many challenges to conventional credit wisdom and associated transactional issues created by a real estate sector eager to embrace innovation.

"This solid practice focuses on advising high-profile lenders on originations and restructurings. Clients have a 'healthy respect' for the lawyers and their work, and add that the team is 'straightforward and easy to use.'" (Chambers UK 2012)

"Commercial Awareness: 'They are exceptionally commercial and sensible, and do not waste our time or money.'" (Chambers UK 2012)
