The dedicated Real Estate Finance team acts for clearing banks, U.S. and European banks, financial institutions, debt funds and alternative lenders, as well as for borrowers, investors, asset managers, funds and private equity investors.
We are specialists in bespoke and structured real estate finance transactions, working closely with our highly regarded tax, indirect real estate, and restructuring team, as well as our top 4 real estate group.
The team has a very strong track record in operational real estate, advising lenders and borrowers on investment and development mandates for hotels, care homes and hospitals, and student accommodation.
