We love the challenge of advising on a complex deal, and are known for handling major real estate development and investment projects in the Baltic states and Belarus – projects where a convention approach is no help, such as property portfolio deals and sale-leaseback transactions – as well as city master plan amendments or other real estate development challenges. We have a strong track record in assisting in and co-ordinating pan-Baltic transactions. Our clients appreciate our “one firm – one team” approach in the region and being able to rely on us at all stages of their projects – from legal due diligence of the target to closing the deal. We assist real estate developers and real estate industry professionals in every aspect of their business, and we speak the language of real estate developers perfectly. We also maintain professional relationships with all state and municipal authorities which are vested with regulatory or supervisory functions with regards to real estate development. We represent our real estate clients in court in cases of infringement of their rights or legitimate expectations. All our real estate partners and experts are recognised as leading practitioners in the field in their respective countries.
Zoning and planning
We can help you with the full range of zoning and planning matters – from assessing the viability of a potential change in zoning and planning documentation to challenging certain zoning and planning regulations in courts.
Professionals in design and construction
Our experts help in drafting design and construction contracts for developments in all sectors, including energy and infrastructure, commercial real estate, and residential development.
Real estate deals
We help sellers and buyers of commercial real estate, whether shopping centres, office buildings, logistic centres, hotels or other kinds of property. Our team has assisted in all the largest real estate deals in the Baltics since the early 2000s. We will advise you on whether a share deal or an asset deal would be better for you, and will make sure that a forward purchase deal is structured and carried out so as no material risk is missed.
Knowledgeable about tenancy issues
Our vast experience in matters of commercial real estate property management helps us to assist landlords and tenants with lease agreements for retail, offices, logistics and hotel management – whether you are the landlord or the tenant, we know what matters to you. “Built-to-suit” site development and leasing is something we understand very well, and we have mastered the skills required to advise on these subjects.
Property and facility management assistance
Year after year, professional owners and regional and global funds rely on us to help with developing and negotiating property or facility management agreements over commercial properties.
Environmental aspects of real estate development
We can advise you on all environmental matters related to the development of your real estate, whether you need advice on environmental assessment and cleaning of an old production site or evaluation of existing special protection zones affecting your potential development or anything else.
A perfect hive mind
Our knowledge management system allows us to share our experience with our team mates in the region and gives us unparalleled insight into precedents and similar cases in the Baltics and Belarus.
