Our Corporate Real Estate group was created in response to changes in real estate transaction and portfolio structures, in which property and corporate matters are becoming increasingly interwoven. The group is primarily focused on portfolio deals, whether structured as a transfer of assets, of shares in property companies or a combination of both, and on advising on the establishment and operation of real estate funds. We use an integrated approach, with tax advisors, civil-law notaries and lawyers from different practices working closely together, ensuring that our clients receive total solutions through a single point of contact. We act for a wide range of clients, including real estate investors, property managers, fund originators and managers, developers and banks.

CMS European Real Es­tate Deal Point Study 2018
The European in­vest­ment mar­ket once again had a very strong year. At EUR 234 bn, total in­vest­ment volume was only 3% be­low the re­cord level seen in 2015. This fig­ure also rep­res­ents an in­crease of 7% year-on-year.In ad­di­tion to the on­go­ing lack of al­tern­at­ive in­vest­ment op­por­tun­it­ies, along with fa­vour­able fin­an­cing con­di­tions, the pos­it­ive eco­nom­ic en­vir­on­ment in Europe was the primary reas­on be­hind the high de­mand for real es­tate in­vest­ment. Fall­ing un­em­ploy­ment fig­ures, buoy­ant con­sumer sen­ti­ment and rising GDP boos­ted con­fid­ence in 2017, par­tic­u­larly among in­ter­na­tion­al in­vestors, and drove up their in­vest­ment activ­ity. Des­pite the un­cer­tain out­come of the on­go­ing EU exit ne­go­ti­ations, the UK also re­mained at­tract­ive for in­vestors. Lim­ited sup­ply ac­ted as a con­straint, how­ever. The res­ult­ing fur­ther in­crease in real es­tate prices has led to his­tor­ic­ally low yields in some cases. Rather than caus­ing in­vestors to aban­don the real es­tate mar­ket, the fo­cus has switched to spe­cial­ist prop­er­ties which of­fer high­er yields than tra­di­tion­al of­fice and re­tail as­sets. In par­tic­u­lar, health­care fa­cil­it­ies, ho­tels and stu­dent apart­ments have all come to the fore. The ex­ist­ing ex­cess de­mand also triggered a sig­ni­fic­ant rise in the num­ber of trans­ac­tions in­volving de­vel­op­ment pro­jects.The con­sist­ently pos­it­ive trend has con­tin­ued in 2018. The latest fig­ures from the first half of the year sup­port the view that des­pite the trade dis­pute with the US and a pos­sible end to low in­terest rates, a down­turn in the European in­vest­ment mar­ket is un­likely this year. The con­fid­ence of in­vestors in real es­tate as an in­vest­ment re­mains in­tact.The new CMS European Real Es­tate Deal Point Study 2018 now in­cludes more than 1,300 trans­ac­tions. Com­pil­ing the study in­volved com­par­ing the trans­ac­tions on which we ad­vised in the peri­od 2010 to 2017, en­abling us to high­light de­vel­op­ments and trends.Down­load the ex­ec­ut­ive sum­mary or re­quest a copy of the full study be­low.360px360pxht­tps://form.jot­form.com/82764088995982 al­ways
