Property & Development

Piper Alderman delivers a comprehensive range of real estate services Australia-wide. Our highly qualified and experienced lawyers are represented in each of our offices by Partners and Special Counsel who are supported by a hard working group of lawyers and paralegals.

We apply our extensive experience and commercial nous to provide efficient and effective services to our clients, including property companies, large corporates, local and overseas investors and developers and Australian and overseas government instrumentalities.

We practice in all sectors of real estate including the office, commercial, industrial, retail, residential, hospitality, aged care, mining and rural property markets. We also work closely with our corporate, tax and financial services lawyers to create balanced, comprehensive legal solutions for our clients.

In relation to property transactions, our highly responsive lawyers assist throughout the deal structuring, document preparation and transaction negotiation stages and are able to recommend a course of action based on commercial and risk factors.

We adopt a ‘concept to completion’ approach to property development, which allows us to be aware of all aspects of a project and to assist our clients to manage development issues and risks whilst achieving commercial objectives. Being involved from the initial stages of a project enables us to provide our clients with the benefit of our experience in due diligence, planning and deal structuring.

Clients can be confident in our expertise across a range of areas such as development approval applications, due diligence, environment and contamination, facilities management, financing, foreign investment, funds raising, investment schemes and joint ventures. We also help with the legalities of leasing, licensing, native title, risk management, sales and acquisition, stamp duty, GST and titling arrangements.
