We are here to help your business

Development and redevelopment projects draw on our strong experience in construction, environmental matters, zoning and land use. We are well known for our practical way of working in real estate development projects, and we are used to working with all relevant parties involved; developers, investors, users, municipalities and authorities. We are familiar with different financing structures used in development project transactions.

Our areas of expertise include

  • Acquisition and sale of properties and real estate portfolios
  • Real estate project management
  • Financing structures, such as Forward Funding, Forward Commitment, Joint Venture and different Special Vehicles
  • Planning and negotiating construction projects
  • Dispute resolution
  • Everyday corporate real estate matters

Our Real Estate team works in close co-operation with Borenius’ Fund Formation team, which gives us an excellent understanding in real estate investments and exits carried out by real estate funds. Taxation is often an important factor in our projects as well, and our tax lawyers often participate in real estate transactions to ensure that transaction and holding structures are tax-efficient for all parties.
