Activity levels across asset classes in the Australian real estate sector are rapidly changing as the market moves through cycles.

Developers and institutions are having to re-assess options for development opportunities and continue to deploy novel strategies to balance their immediate real estate requirements with their longer-term needs.

Our real estate team has extensive experience advising domestic and multinational clients on all aspects of the development, sale and acquisition of residential, retail, industrial and commercial properties. We advise leading developers, institutional funds, occupiers, government agencies and statutory corporations.

We understand the nuances of Australian real estate, including the perspectives and requirements of buyers, sellers, investors, tenants and financiers, and the evolving strategies that owners utilise to derive more value from their portfolios, attract the right buyers, win deals, harness technology, deliver ESG improvements and transform assets.

With the collaborative support of our expert tax, corporate, environment and planning lawyers, we deliver a strategic, pragmatic and end-to-end approach to all forms of real estate transactions, with our clients’ commercial objectives in mind at all times.

We coordinate the legal and technical analysis of potential assets, and assist clients to mitigate risks and achieve the most efficient and appropriate GST, stamp duty and accounting outcomes possible.
