Real estate finance

Within our banking and finance practice, we have a team of specialist real estate finance lawyers who combine their real estate and banking knowledge to provide a seamless service.  

Our real estate finance specialists spend 100 per cent of their time advising on all real estate financing related matters. We deal with all aspects of real estate investment and development including infrastructure finance. We oversee the whole transaction advising on the finance documentation as well as overseeing or undertaking real estate due diligence on behalf of either lender or borrower clients. Our team also advises public sector bodies on grants and loans and real estate investors on structuring their transactions in a way that will be acceptable to a future lender.
