“Expert legal advice and experience are givens. We understand the business objectives of our clients and work with them to achieve those objectives. We provide commercially realistic advice based on our specialist knowledge of the property industry.”
Unlike other firms, our Property and Real Estate Group did not develop as an add-on to other core practice areas. Instead, it is one of our core practice groups with clients, people and a reputation envied by rivals. Our commercial savvy means we ‘see the deal’. We can pick the issues in the context of our client’s objectives to know when, and how best to compromise and make the right call.
We act for developers and landowners, superannuation funds, managed investment schemes, listed and unlisted corporations, banks and non-bank financiers, government departments and statutory authorities and local and overseas investors.
It is one thing to know a client's business, but without understanding the ‘environment’ in which the business operates, that knowledge is flawed. We understand the whole property environment including the physical, jurisdictional, regulatory, economic and sectoral elements. We also understand the motivations of each stakeholder such as buyer, seller, agent, developer, financier, tenant, property manager, insurer, officer, shareholder or unitholder. We have the legal, managerial and interpersonal skills to operate in the total property environment to the best advantage of our clients.
We deal with all aspects of real estate transactions. Our expertise covers:
- ownership and development structuring and finance
- due diligence and acquisition
- development and construction including sustainability
- major projects and infrastructure
- planning and environment issues, bio-diversity
- land titling, subdivision and governance
- leasing, liquor licensing, asset and building management
- off-the-plan sales and development leasing
- retirement living
- agribusiness and rural industries including water law.
We have a thorough understanding of direct and indirect taxation issues and other government regulatory requirements relating to the acquisition, development and ownership of property.
