Real Estate > Real Estate Finance

In today’s economy, the knowledgeable purchase, development, financing, leasing and sale of property for business and investment purposes is the key to success. Our experienced real estate attorneys represent sophisticated clients at all phases of this process.

Outside the real estate and finance arena, few projects put as much money on the line or are as important to the future of a business. And few decisions are more critical for real estate and finance success than choosing the right partners. At Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, our real estate and finance attorneys are committed to being good partners for our clients and providing innovative representation that is second to none in its comprehensiveness, vision and professionalism. With the breadth of our experience and the integrated support of one of the world’s leading law firms, our real estate and finance attorneys find creative solutions to help our clients save money, avoid pitfalls and achieve success.

We have extensive experience representing major public and private companies, commercial and industrial developers, REITs, commercial banks, insurance companies, institutional lenders, pension funds, mortgage servicers, investment banks, contractors, domestic and offshore investors, hospitals and governments in a wide range of traditional and innovative real estate-related matters and projects. Our representation of global leaders extends beyond acquisitions and dispositions to construction and permanent lending, syndicated credit lines for private equity funds, debt securitizations, warehouse loan facilities and conduit financing.

Akin Gump’s real estate and finance practice has been assembled to provide the responsive service, sense of partnership, local presence and market knowledge of a small firm, with the resources, depth and breadth of experience, support and proven track record that only a national law firm can provide. And because our clients do business globally, so do we, with offices in London, Moscow and Beijing. In addition, we are able to offer our clients the widest array of complementary services, including environmental law, real estate and construction litigation, financial restructuring, tax, and ERISA.
