Department profile submitted by Wolf Theiss

Local knowledge is vital when it comes to Real Estate.

Our Reputation

We have a long-standing track-record of successfully structuring complex multi-phase projects and real estate investments. For years we have been laying solid foundations for real estate investments by covering areas of key importance such as environmental, waste and energy efficiency compliance and planning. By helping our clients to anticipate, avoid or solve problems before they become conflicts, we are continuously maintaining our established leading position.

Our Cases

We participated in the majority of the landmark deals in the sector, starting from the setting-up of office and shopping centers in the country and the subsequent development of large scale infrastructure projects and industrial properties. We have significant experience orchestrating complex multi-phase projects including drafting the requisite documentation, facilitating negotiations, navigating the legal and regulatory mazes and, when necessary, coordinating litigation cases on behalf of our clients.

Our Role

More than just facilitating individual real estate and construction transactions, our Real Estate team strives to help clients create and implement effective strategies for addressing development related business needs. Uniquely for a law firm acting on the Bulgarian market, we have the capacity to cover the tax aspects of entries into and exits from real estate investments

Our Reach

With offices in 13 countries in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe and 3 regional desks covering Kosovo, Macedonia (led from Bulgaria) and Montenegro, Wolf Theiss is ideally positioned to handle local as well as regional real estate and construction mandates.

Our Advantage

We truly operate as a single firm. This enables us to always assign the best team of lawyers in accordance with the specific needs of a client. Each of our offices works on transactions that rank among the most significant in their markets so our clients can rely on unified high quality work. Our lawyers have years of experience of working together on cross-border transactions. Our clients have one point of contact.

Our Work

In Bulgaria, we advise Bulgarian clients on their cross-border acquisitions and international clients on their pan-CEE real estate matters. Our recent cross-border work from Bulgaria includes advising EBP as pan-CEE counsel on the management of real estate assets in Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia, as pan CEE-counsel for QBE on the disposal of real estate assets in Hungary, Slovenia and Ukraine, as well as mandates for the largest office park in Southeastern Europe (Business Park Sofia), Wacom Europe GmbH, Salvamed and Peek & Cloppenburg.
