Our Real Estate Finance practice brings the experience of an extensive track record in advising and servicing complex funding of domestic and international real estate financings in all its forms.
We are on the panels for two of the UK’s clearing banks and have acted for them on a significant range of real estate financings. We also act for several further UK and international banks, as well as a range of non-bank senior finance and mezzanine fund lenders, investors, property companies, developers, domestic and international funds and equity providers. We participate in all sectors of the real estate finance market including investment, development, structured and cross-border financings.
With this depth of experience in acting for both borrowers and lenders, we have a thorough understanding of the requirements of the market and are able to offer innovative solutions. Much of our real estate work has an international element, with a specific focus on inward investment and the financing of investment and development projects in the UK.
Our Luxembourg office has extensive experience of advising on the use of Luxembourg companies and funds as tax efficient vehicles for holding and financing UK and European real estate portfolios. We also have a strong reputation for real estate finance work in sub-Saharan Africa.
