With more than 60 real estate lawyers and other professionals in seven of our firm's U.S. offices, our Real Estate Finance Practice in the United States covers both coasts and assists our clients across the country wherever their business needs may take them. Known for our efficiency in handling transactions of all sizes and degrees of complexity, we represent major corporations, regional and national developers, REITs, private equity funds, institutional lenders, investors, pension funds, and advisers and special servicers in connection with their ownership, use, and financing of real estate. We often handle acquisitions, dispositions, financing, workouts and restructurings, land assemblage, development, investments by foreign entities, sale-leasebacks, leasing, taxation, condemnation, and land use. In Europe and Asia, Morgan Lewis assists clients in real estate financings which are domestic and cross-border.
Our real estate lawyers provide advice on sophisticated issues at an extraordinary level of responsiveness—a combination that sets us apart from most large law firms. We demonstrate a thorough understanding of our clients’ objectives by having each matter overseen by a partner who assembles a knowledgeable and cost-effective team of lawyers and legal assistants to manage the project. By carefully crafting each team, we are able to maintain excellence and control costs. We work equally well with clients in the real estate industry and those whose business model deploys real estate as a key strategic asset. We collaborate regularly with other practices within the firm to provide seamless, coordinated service to our clients, whatever the demands of the transaction.
