Robert himself is a sector leader in the Asia-Pacific and has a wealth of experience acting on behalf of clients in both local and regional real estate markets. He advises multi-national corporations, institutional investors, private equity funds, SMEs, and entrepreneurs on a wide range of domestic and commercial transactions, involving real estate assets of all types and classes.
Our land and property lawyers are highly sought after to advise on hotel/resort development projects, condominium and residential developments, industrial acquisitions, mixed-use property developments, construction loans & other real estate financing, real estate workouts & restructurings, and transactions involving distressed assets. In the context of these transactions, we regularly act on behalf of buyers & sellers, owners & operators, developers, lenders, and equity investors.
Our real estate and project finance attorneys work closely together and often jointly counsel clients on how to navigate the region’s complex real estate markets so as to mitigate risk, avoid disputes, and maximize return on investment.
