With global commercial real estate investment volumes on the increase and growing optimism in the development market, the real estate market is showing signs of recovery in the developed economies while remaining particularly buoyant in key emerging markets.
There continues to be strong investor demand in the UK market for trophy assets and the Middle East has maintained its global investment appeal – particularly within the hospitality and leisure sector.

We provide clients with specialist legal advice related to acquiring, financing, developing, managing, constructing, leasing and selling of commercial real estate. Our practice is internationally recognised for its experience and ability to handle transactions of any complexity, as evidenced by our consistently high praise in leading international legal directories.
Our capabilities span the following sectors:
- Mixed use schemes

Our international real estate practice is closely aligned with the firm’s planning, construction, environmental, dispute resolution, corporate and commercial teams. The group also benefits from a dedicated property finance team and a team of retail property specialists.
With the real estate market transitioning towards recovery, we understand that many of our clients continue to face tough business decisions and challenges. Working with a wide range of real estate clients across the globe, we know and understand the industry and what drives key business decisions.
We focus on identifying and offering the specialist services required by each part of the market and on working with those clients on the development of their interests for many years.
