Real Estate Law

Extensive investments, often financed by borrowed capital, affect the real estate sector when it is faced with economic downturns, increased inflation and rising interest rates. A change in interest rates may have consequences for selected financing solutions, increased energy costs may lead to a need to renegotiate existing leases and, for a commercial property owner, increased costs for commercial tenants may lead to unwanted vacancies. We provide support and expert advice in these situations, as well as in connection with planned expansions, conversion projects, cooperation agreements and negotiation of commercial agreements..

We help throughout the entire real estate transaction

We represent clients in connection with major business events such as acquisition or divestment of commercial real estate, and provide real estate law expertise in all stages of a real estate transaction. For some of our clients, this takes place on a day-to-day basis, for others it is less frequent. 

In a real estate transaction, we support the client in negotiations with the other party, planning the transaction structure and assisting with the client’s strategic considerations. We also develop transaction structures for the sale of real estate in a company form. Our experience and expertise have resulted in a number of successful acquisitions and sales of commercial properties in which we have been involved from the start.

Property management and operation

We work with clients with existing property portfolios on a day-to-day and recurring basis with issues related to operation and management. We assist our clients with matters including, among others, interpretation and application of lease agreements and right of use agreements, provide representation in lease disputes and draft commercial leases.

We are accustomed to dealing with all questions related to commercial tenancy law that arise on a day-to-day basis for property management companies and operators. This means that we can quickly help our clients find solutions to common management problems for commercial rental properties.
