The international real estate market continues to evolve and does so against a backdrop of continued economic uncertainty and a lack of available debt. This evolution has brought with it a focus on alternative sources of funding and an increase in joint venture initiatives and cross border transactions. Whilst often complex and challenging however, the international market also presents opportunities for development and commercial success and our unparalleled expertise in the sector allows us to guide and support clients in achieving their objectives.
Our market-leading real estate practice combines key sector knowledge, unparalleled technical ability and a commercial focus, which ensures clients receive the best possible support and guidance. We are consistently ranked number one by the legal directories across all of real estate disciplines and our lawyers are recognised as experts in their fields.
Our international capabilities mean that we are well-placed to advise clients from a number of jurisdictions. With over 60 partners and 300 lawyers, our dedicated real estate team has the resources and expertise to meet the requirements of our international client base.
Much of the complex work we carry out requires a multi-disciplinary approach and we regularly work closely, with specialisms across the firm in our corporate, finance, tax and risk management functions. Our lawyers have in-depth knowledge of all issues relating to planning, construction and engineering, direct and indirect investment, funds, real estate & property finance, tax, development, securitisation, dispute resolution, environment and regulatory. In addition we are also recognised and highly regarded for our achievements in many market sectors including leisure, hotels, student accommodation, public sector and retail.
