Real Estate Funds

We have deep real estate funds experience, including in relation to the formation and ongoing representation of real estate funds. These include open and closed ended funds, limited partnerships and co-ownership arrangements. Covering Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East, the team is renowned for its multi-jurisdictional real estate funds experience and capacity to provide seamless advice on a global scale.

We have been leaders in Pan-European real estate fundraises for almost 20 years and helped pave the way in the sector, advising on the first real estate fund structured as a Luxembourg FCP. Since then, we have topped the legal rankings, consistently ranked as Tier 1 in real estate funds.
