In a highly competitive market, institutional property vendors and buyers are working hard to extract maximum value and secure the best deals. We’re continuing to see more asset swap deals and, in certain markets, vendors carrying out due diligence to increase the attractiveness of assets to potential buyers.

We are market leaders in real estate capital transactions and are regularly called upon to execute Australia’s largest and most complex property transactions.

We have acted on many of the most significant real estate capital transactions in Australia in recent years. Our multidisciplinary team spans the core areas of real estate, banking, M&A and funds and specialist areas including tax, employment, intellectual property and planning.

Having acted on over 200 transactions in recent years, our real estate capital transactions team truly understands what drives both buyers and sellers and are experts in deal execution. Our expertise covers all major real estate matters, including acquisitions and disposals (both direct and by way of unit sale agreements), restructures, unit holder agreements, structuring, investment, asset, property and development management agreements as well as FIRB and regulatory advice. We also understand the fund mandates and risk profile of global capital and the need to ensure that investments match that framework.
