Our Commitment to Diversity

Real Estate Finance

Our firm offers sophisticated and deep experience in representing clients throughout the debt stack. With an integrated team of lawyers in offices across five continents, we have one of the largest global real estate finance law practices. Our practice combines lawyers with core competencies in real estate, corporate finance, restructuring, tax, and regulatory matters to offer our clients unparalleled service while handling a wide range of real estate finance transactions.

Our experience covers providing strategic and practical advice on finance matters on behalf of borrowers, lenders, servicers, and securitization and syndication market participants, including the origination and sale of senior and mezzanine loans, construction loans, credit facilities, bridge debt, warehouse loans, leasehold finance, and the securitization and syndication of commercial real estate mortgages and other assets backed by real estate.

Our lawyers regularly handle matters ranging from traditional mortgage debt to large, sophisticated, high-profile, and market-leading structured finance transactions. 

A significant portion of our work involves helping our clients navigate the increasingly complex debt markets in their home jurisdiction and abroad. Our transaction teams are led by partners with significant real estate debt knowledge. Our array of clients include insurance companies, investment and commercial banks, and foreign investment trusts that extend debt, as well as owners, operators, and developers who accept debt, together with servicers and other debt market intermediaries.
