Orrick has long focused on real estate as a core practice. We have successfully handled countless high-profile regional, national and international real estate transactions and projects, including large commercial properties, business parks, shopping centers and international developments. Our reputation in the real estate area is based principally on the development of long-term relationships with property owners (family offices, institutional investors including investment funds), financial institutions, major corporations and developers and construction companies.
We provide comprehensive advice on all areas of legal and strategic structuring of commercial real estate projects, including a broad spectrum of civil and public law issues. In particular, our German team provides advice relating to real estate acquisitions, purchases and sales of individual properties as well as large portfolio transactions, establishment of building rights, financing and the provision of ongoing advice in connection with the management of real estate portfolios and leases.
