Real estate funds
Lawrence Graham's traditional strengths in the areas of real estate, investments funds, corporate finance and tax structuring mean we are extremely well positioned to advise you on both real estate investment and the structuring of real estate funds. Our leading funds practice comprises eight partners and a further eight lawyers.
The team has wide ranging experience in establishing and providing ongoing legal advice to UK, European and global funds. The team also has vast experience in acting for investors investing into UK, European and global funds.
We are market leaders in establishing indirect real estate investment structures. Our experience ranges from establishing both authorised and unauthorised UK-based investment vehicles to offshore structures. We also act for a variety of institutions and funds investing indirectly into both UK and offshore real estate funds and provide a comprehensive ‘due diligence’ service, focusing always on the needs of the investor. Tax in particular will be a key issue at both investor level and fund level.
We also have extensive experience of buying and selling real estate assets through onshore and offshore corporate entities, limited partnerships and unit trusts. The team is also well versed in structuring and negotiating joint ventures, with particular expertise in regeneration projects and shopping centre developments.
We pride ourselves on our ability to provide both commercial solutions and clear advice on complex technical issues, and we are also active participants in bodies including the British Property Federation, Property Industry Alliance, Federation of Corporate Real Estate, Investment Property Forum and Leisure Property Forum.
