Our Prague Real Estate and Construction team consists of highly experienced specialists with an in-depth knowledge of the local business environment and current market developments, and we have a strong reputation among both foreign investors and Czech sector players.
We offer the benefit of long-standing experience in the real estate market, having advised on some of the biggest logistics, office and retail transactions in the country, as well as Central and South Eastern Europe. In an increasingly unpredictable property market, we can advise you on complex cross-border property portfolio sales and acquisitions and provide industry-specific advice on matters such as leasing agenda, construction and development projects and construction litigation.
Through decades of experience of doing deals locally and across Europe we can deploy specialist teams to support clients immediately, irrespective of where their real estate assets are in the region. We also are very experienced at working with the CMS funds and corporate teams, as well as our colleagues in other practice groups; we frequently support clients with the launching or operating of their real estate funds or setting up real estate related joint ventures. This approach means we can support clients on the full spectrum of advice needed including tax, planning, debt financing, construction and management issues in addition to their traditional real estate portfolio and property management work.
