As the property landscape shifts, we can help you adapt. Our standout commercial real estate practice has helped several well-known businesses to grow around the world. We also work with clients from charities to developers to ensure their deals go smoothly.

Whether you're an investor looking to make a profit in the US, a luxury retailer searching for a prime location in London, or a non-profit interested in raising your profile through a new building project, our commercial real estate team can serve your needs.

Our international lawyers offer insight and guidance on day-to-day real estate investments, as well as complex development projects.

Global reach

We act as trusted advisers to global companies as they expand internationally. Our experience includes assisting an international leisure group to establish high-end hotels in capital cities around the globe. Our knowledge of worldwide real estate markets and our intimate understanding of international tax laws has allowed us to manage this entire project.
