Real Estate Funds

Shearman & Sterling maintains a diverse and sophisticated real estate funds practice, with experience in the full range of real estate fund activity, including fund formation, co-investment structuring, property acquisitions and dispositions, financing and leasing transactions, REIT offerings and internal sponsor arrangements. We have represented clients in the formation of US funds, global funds, funds of funds and Shari’ah compliant funds, and our funds clients have made investments in the United States, Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.

In all of our real estate fund representations, we work closely with the firm’s Real Estate, Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits, Financial Institutions Advisory & Financial RegulatoryTax and other groups to provide our clients with the full breadth of knowledge and experience relevant to the complex and sophisticated issues related to real estate fund formation, fund management and co-investment transactions. Together with our colleagues, we provide assistance in the drafting of fund documentation, the preparation of other related agreements (such as property management, leasing and credit agreements) and negotiations with investors. We also provide structuring and formation advice as to the feeder and blocker vehicles (including private REITs) that might be utilized for the benefit of particular real estate fund investors.
