Real value expertise in Real Estate & Construction

There was a period when real estate & construction was the fastest growing sector of the Romanian market, when businesses swiftly closed a large number of deals and developed a large number of projects with minimum efforts and high returns. Nowadays, a more mature market has evolved from the midst of the global turmoil. Real estate & construction projects entail substantially more efforts and a sensible need to be driven by a well-balanced combination of innovation, information, efficiency and pragmatism in order to be successful.

Irrespective of the period, our attorneys have had a substantial contribution to the field, having been involved in all types of real estate & construction projects at all stages thereof, spanning industrial, logistic, commercial, residential and office high profile projects, share and asset deals, forward funding transactions, sale and acquisition of construction, farming and forest lands, advising on financing and securitization, permitting and regulatory matters, conducting complex due diligence enquiries, drafting and negotiating numerous transaction documents, conceiving the optimum legal structures of the projects and providing day-to-day assistance throughout the entire development and marketing thereof. Thus, our team’s dedication has stood at the base of many successful and high profile real estate & construction projects, our lawyers being continuously involved in a broad range of projects that are being developed, sold or bought in Romania.
