Acquisition, Disposition and Asset Management
Few business assets are more vital—and more valuable—than your real estate holdings. Every owner of commercial real estate assets needs to have a comprehensive strategy governing why and how real property is acquired, leveraged, used, and sold. Creating an effective strategy - and executing upon it - is the best way to maximize the value of your portfolio and the returns from your investment in it. However, sophisticated asset management planning is its own unique professional discipline and requires an intimate knowledge of the real estate industry, its players, products, opportunities, and risks.
Our Real Estate Practice Group is comprised of attorneys who have previously managed large real estate portfolios for Fortune 500 companies and on behalf of private investment partnerships. Our ranks also include practitioners who serve, or have served, in academic roles within their areas of expertise and in numerous public service capacities. As a group, our lawyers have a wealth of practical experience which makes our team uniquely suited to advise you on the legal and business implications of owning and managing real property. We work with companies and sophisticated individual investors in connection with the acquisition, leveraging, repositioning, and disposition of real estate throughout the world.
During the course of our investment sales and asset management engagements, we help our clients with respect to structural, organizational and governance matters, tax planning, land use and entitlement issues, leasing and licensing, construction and development/redevelopment. We also provide all related support for transactional assignments, such as the management of due diligence assessments, the coordination of professional services, technological support, interacting with governmental agencies, retaining vendors, and providing closing services.
