Our dedicated real estate team offers legal advice on typical real estate transactions such as purchases and sales, exchanges, leases, donations and lease transactions, as well as on the structuring of more complex contracts involving built-to-suit leases, sale and leaseback transactions or turnkey modalities, creation of surface rights, structuring of condominiums, land subdivisions and large projects (shopping malls, hotels and clubs), creation of real estate-based security packages in financial transactions, structuring of securitization transactions, and organization of real estate investments funds.
The firm provides legal advice related to urban legislation, with emphasis on land use and development, as well as on landmark listed properties.
We also have extensive experience in transactions involving rural properties and their development, focusing also on review and correction of environmental aspects (permanent conservation area, legal reserve and other topics related to the environmental area).
We carry out real estate due diligences to pinpoint possible risks for investors in intended deals, particularly in connection with title, origin and good standing of real properties.
The real estate area works collaboratively with the other areas of the firm (especially the tax and corporate areas) in structuring real estate transactions to offer clients the best, more complete and less costly mechanism for the intended investment.
We assist our clients in drafting and negotiating contracts, as well as in wealth and estate planning.
