The comprehensive reform of German restructuring and insolvency law implements the European Restructuring Directive but also makes further important changes to the insolvency law.
Our global real estate team is known for bringing funders, sponsors, developers and investors together to deliver finance arrangements that work for all parties.
We advise on domestic and international real estate finance matters across a range of asset classes, including hotels, residential, mixed-use, care homes and student accommodation.
Our client community includes banks, debt funds, institutional blue chip organisations, pension funds, family offices, sovereign funds, REITS, substantial private companies and high-net-worth individuals. We like to bring interested parties together to find mutually satisfactory solutions to real estate financing. A particular strength includes our work with non-traditional funding institutions and on inward investment strategies, where we have in particular worked closely with investors in South East Asia and the Middle East.
Our experience covers loan originations, loan workouts, sale and leaseback and opco/propco structures, secondary market debt acquisitions, equity investments, A/B inter-creditor structures, mezzanine and profit participation structures, construction loans and development financings, securitisation, as well as pan-European and cross-border real estate financings. We also have a reputation for complex financing structures and bespoke transactions in the hotels and student accommodation sectors.
