REAL ESTATE

Our experts in real estate law focus their practice on all aspects of the building processes, leases, investments, divestments and real estate financing in all sectors: residential, offices, industrial, logistics, commercial and hotels. Our advice is not limited exclusively to real estate law; it addresses any matter of law related to the real estate business, such as urban planning, public law and tax advice – any of which could be decisive for the viability of the real property business.

We work with our developer clients from the initial phase of the analysis and planning of the investment, evaluating the legal issues involved in the process, to the acquisition of land, providing our services on drafting and advice on the negotiation of the necessary contracts for urban development, design, architecture, project management, construction, marketing and financing.

We advise institutional investors as well as private funds and family offices that carry out pure investments, sale and lease-backs, forward funding agreements and other transactions, and operators whose connection to the properties is as users and not as investors.

Added value lies in our capacity to provide our clients with imaginative and original solutions, viable from legal, tax and urban planning standpoints in order to close investment, divestment, development and construction transactions, as well as to propose useful, profitable solutions in situations of conflict. At a time such as the present, with an economy in recession and a market stressed by the lack of liquidity, these capabilities have been at the service of our clients, allowing us to have participated in recent years in transactions of major relevance in the media, acting on behalf of first-rate operators who continue to contract our services on a recurrent basis.
