Real estate has emerged as an attractive long-term investment for investors seeking diversification and stable yields in an uncertain economy. As a sector, real estate must both compete with other investment classes and offer a desirable product to end-users whether they are buying or leasing.
Our clients benefit from our significant experience in orchestrating high value, long-term projects that involve complex structuring, facilitating negotiations, ensuring tax efficiency, navigating legal and regulatory issues and, when necessary, litigating on their behalf.
Experience has included advising:
- A public real estate company in drafting a loan agreement for the construction of a social housing project for the urban population.
- The International Finance Corporation in drafting a policy note on a real estate transfer tax case.
