Turbulence in China, combined with uncertainty in Europe, new bank regulatory requirements and an interest rate rise in the U.S. pose new challenges for real estate industry executives. Yesterday’s strategies may not work in today’s rapidly changing world.
Our Real Estate practice assists clients in their strategic goals around the globe, partnering alongside private and institutional investors, developers, owners, lenders and underwriters in real estate joint ventures, development projects, leases, acquisitions and dispositions. The representation of equity investors is central to our business, and we regularly advise individual investors, joint ventures and investment funds. We have been entrusted by many of our international investor clients to assist in the formation and implementation of their U.S. and European real estate investment programs.
Our work with lenders and investors in real estate debt products is also key to our business. We regularly advise clients in secured and unsecured credit facilities, mezzanine and construction financings and single and multi-asset loans. Our team pioneered the development of highly successful and sophisticated real estate financing techniques, including the first-ever corporate revolving credit facility for a Mexican FIBRA, the first-ever syndicated financing of a Japanese distressed debt portfolio and the first-ever subscription financing for a European real estate investment fund.
With a global reach of offices in the world’s established and emerging markets, our team has been involved in transactions concerning some of the world’s most iconic structures, complex financings, and largest developments in real estate. Our world view and positioning give us a unique understanding of international issues and regional practices.
