Property finance

From supporting successful people as they evolve their property portfolios, to helping notable companies to build a presence around the world, we have extensive experience in structuring and project-managing all kinds of real estate transaction.

As one of the world's leading law firms in advising on private capital we have extensive experience in the sale and purchase of investment properties and portfolios, as well as development deals, financing and the global hospitality and retail sectors.

As part of a global practice, we are adept at helping you project manage your cross-border transactions. Our team will also ensure you protect the value of your property investments, by structuring them in the most tax-efficient way.
 

Clients include individual investors, banks, financiers and developers based around the world, including well-known names from ‘rich lists’ in the US, Europe and Asia. Many have substantial property portfolios, and seek advice on transactions of urban and rural land of every description, from offices, retail units and warehouses to forestry and agricultural land. We recently represented the seller of a beachfront residential parcel in the Hamptons, New York; one of the highest residential sale prices recorded to date.

Hospitality is a particular strength, and we can advise on numerous debt and equity financing products that are suitable for hotel and restaurant businesses. Our longstanding clients in this sector include Soho House, which has in recent years acquired a string of new sites for new private members’ clubs in locations as diverse as Barcelona, Istanbul and Malibu.

With more than 100 charity and nonprofit clients, we often advise these organizations on secured lending relating to property and facilities. Recently, we represented a major donor for a new public museum in New York State, helping with joint venture financing and construction agreements with public and private participants. And we structured funding for the redevelopment of London's Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.
