Our lawyers’ experience includes acquisition of real properties, surface rights, lease agreements, built to suit, sale and lease back, rural lease agreements, partnership agreements, constructions, condominiums, real estate developments, securitization and financing, joint ventures, and restructuring. We work on many different types of real estate projects, including commercial real estate ventures, residential and multiuse, hotels, hospitals, shopping centers, multiuse arenas, infrastructure projects, industrial sites and logistic centers, and acquisition of rural terrains.

Our team is also recognized for their work on jobs involving real estate financing, including financing projects, real estate investment funds, and certificates of real estate receivables.

Our lawyers work closely with other firm departments, such as tax, capital markets, M&A, investment funds, environmental, and financial, in order to provide the highest standard of legal advice along with our entire experience in the sector. Our real estate clients include several major real estate developers in Brazil, along with national and international investors, private equity funds, pension funds, sovereign funds, financial institutes, asset managers, and entrepreneurs.
