Indirect Real Estate


When navigating joint ventures, funds, corporate acquisitions and financing structures in the real estate sector, it is essential that the legal advice you receive covers all angles. Working alongside our wider Real Estate Group, our corporate real estate lawyers offer a seamless service concerning transactions in the sector. Our Indirect Real Estate team works in unison with our tax and finance lawyers to advise our clients at every stage of the investment cycle.

Our practice is built on a foundation of strong corporate technical experience and in-depth sector knowledge combined with a commercial outlook. We advise across the full set of asset classes including residential development, build to rent, logistics, student accommodation, senior living, hotels and leisure, offices, retail and life sciences.

From fund formation to the acquisition and disposal phase, we take a solutions-driven approach to the entire indirect real estate investment lifecycle. We have deep experience in establishing private and listed onshore and offshore real estate funds and work at the leading edge of new fund structures.

We procure time and cost efficiencies for our clients by utilising our dedicated Transaction Services team to assist with due diligence, the preparation of targets for sale, data room compilation and disclosure process management.

We are experienced in advising seasoned investors in the UK market as well as first-time investors and are well equipped to advise our domestic clients on their investment portfolios abroad with the assistance of our international offices and network of best friend firms.
