We are one of the few firms with a truly global real estate finance capability. We have specialist real estate finance lawyers throughout our network in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, North America and Australia who have extensive experience advising across the full spectrum of domestic and cross-border real estate financings, including high-value and complex transactions and major real estate developments and acquisitions.

Our real estate finance team has years of experience advising all stakeholders across the whole spectrum of real estate transactions. We act for lenders, borrowers, arrangers, issuers and investors and have advised on some of the largest and most complex structured real estate financings in the last decade.

We have specialist experience in investment and development financing and in-depth knowledge across the sectors including hotels and leisure, residential, student accommodation, office, retail and logistics. We have built a strong reputation for development financings and in particular, large-scale mixed use regeneration projects. Green and sustainable lending is fast becoming an integral feature of our real estate finance practice as pressure grows on banks to develop this offering across sectors.

Our areas of specialized focus include domestic and cross-border senior debt financings; mezzanine and other subordinated debt structures; commercial and residential investment, development financings and forward fundings; distressed debt, restructuring, non-performing loan portfolios, dispute resolution and insolvency; public and private real estate investment funds and joint ventures; and Opco/Propco structures and sale and leasebacks.

With over 50 offices worldwide and dedicated real estate finance lawyers in all of the major markets, we are one of the few global law firms with the experience, skill and depth of resources necessary to support clients wherever they may need us.
