We work with all actors in the real estate industry, in particular institutional investors, investment funds, developers and property users in their investment transactions (“asset” and “share” deals), development and management of their real estate assets, particularly in relation to commercial leases, both in advisory and litigation matters.

Our sector expertise and the significant size of our team enable us to be present at all stages of a real estate transaction: from its structuring to its marketing.

We have also developed an established experience in the financing of real estate assets, the contractual monitoring of complex real estate transactions and partnerships between real estate operators.
