In this Commercial Disputes Weekly we examine whether an arbitration agreement can exist when no binding contract was concluded. We also consider a post-Brexit anti-suit injunction, the duty of care under a yacht delivery contract and when a landlord can obtain dispensation from notice requirements.
Our hands-on, multi-disciplinary team will guide you through the increasing complexities of today’s global property market.
An impact of the increasing global appetite for real estate assets is that property transactions are becoming ever more complicated, structurally and financially. Our international scope combined with local expertise on the ground qualify us to handle and complete a multitude of complex cross-border real estate transactions.
Our multi-disciplinary team has a hands-on approach that gives you finely tuned commercially-focussed advice for every stage of the property lifecycle including site assembly, planning, construction, project development, financing, sale and purchase, leasing and investment. And with a wide understanding of the real estate market, our restructuring and dispute resolution lawyers can expertly steer you through commercial difficulty or economic downturn.
We represent owners, developers, landlords, tenants, lenders and investors including private equity, REITs and borrowers across all segments of the real estate market, from office, retail, hotels and hospitality to logistics and mixed-use.
In addition to standalone real estate mandates, we add particular value to infrastructure projects across the energy and transport sectors, regularly advising on the real estate aspects of large, multi-faceted projects through a combination of our technical expertise and industry knowledge.
