Real Estate

A strong commercial focus is integral to obtain favourable outcomes for clients in the real estate sector. We combine commercial nous with extensive experience and legal skills to achieve excellent results for our clients in this sector.

Piper Alderman provides a broad range of services to clients involved in the real estate sector including institutional investors, REITs, property developers, national landlords and tenants, air and sea port managers, local authorities, quarry operators, telecommunication companies and a diverse range of corporate organisations transacting in the Australian office, industrial, retail, hotel, residential, mining, aged care and rural property markets.

Our lawyers have a strong transactional focus and are highly responsive, especially in the document preparation and transaction negotiation stage. We have the experience to provide commercially astute advice and recommend solutions which reflect commercial objectives and protect against unacceptable risk.

We are well known for our work with developers, where we add value to a development project by preparing quality documents and working closely with our clients to assist in firming up a development feasibility and in document preparation and negotiation to identify the legal and commercial risks, and make recommendations on managing those risks.

Our many years of industry experience in the leasing sector enables us to provide high quality, sensible and cost effective advice to landlords and tenants across Australia in office, commercial, industrial, retail and strata title leasing, agreements for lease, incentive and fit out deeds, licences and assignments. We also have extensive experience and intimate knowledge of strata title schemes in each state acting mainly for apartment developers in preparation of ‘off the plan’ contracts and disclosure statements, scheme structuring, staging of strata title development and management rights.

Our clients operating in the real estate sector also benefit from the expertise of our national firm with whom our real estate lawyers work closely. Some of those areas of expertise include corporate, commercial, tax, construction, infrastructure, banking and finance, employment relations and dispute resolution.
