Real estate is one of our core practice areas with Romania maintaining a strong drive for further development. Several key areas remain underdeveloped and we believe that the real estate sector is the key to spurring further growth in the Romanian economy. We also believe real estate projects involving agriculture and forestry will see a sharp increase in the near future, based on the abundance of these resources and long-term historical trends.
We provide advice and assistance to real estate investment and management funds, developers, banks and other financial institutions, as well as to real estate consultants and professionals in all aspects of their property-related activities.
We are widely recognised as the leading firm on leasing and build-to-suit lease agreements, our team being involved, amongst others, in the largest ever single tenant office lease in Romania.
We also assist local and foreign public bodies on legal issues involving real estate, including: real estate transfers; mergers, acquisitions and investments; and construction issues. We provide day-to-day assistance for residential, commercial, and industrial/logistical real estate uses, real estate finance, planning and urban planning. In matters involving urban planning, the firm offers legal advice on zoning regulations, municipal restrictions, licencing procedures and authorisations for urban operations.
With our support, our clients have developed acclaimed office buildings, residential projects, retail spaces and health and leisure developments.
