Overview

ALTIUS’ real estate & regulatory practice gives our clients a clear advantage by using in-depth sector know-how to advise on issues concerning private law (property issues, rights in rem, etc.) and public law (town planning and zoning rules, building and allotment permits, soil issues, expropriation and public domain issues).

Our team assists in complex real estate transactions and (re-)structuring (divestitures, sale-and-leaseback and PPP). We also assist and advise our clients with (re-)development projects. Our team can advise on soil clean-up, waste disposal and nuisance issues.

Our clients come to us from across industry sectors for advice on shopping centres, logistics parks, hotels, sports and leisure centres and senior citizens’ or student housing. 

We combine our legal advice with practical transaction assistance throughout each complex and innovative structure.

While our first objective is to help our clients anticipate - and prevent - legal risks; we also have extensive real estate-related and construction litigation experience.

Our team functions within a fully integrated law firm because we believe that this structure benefits our clients. Our team’s co-operation with the tax firm, Tiberghien, has strengthened our ability to optimise real estate transactions from both a tax and legal perspective.

ALTIUS invests continuously in building long-standing relations with regulators, industry groups and business people.
