In the real estate sector, we look at the whole picture

As one of the firm's key areas of expertise, real estate is at the heart of Addleshaw Goddard.

We view real estate in the broadest sense, taking into accounts all aspects impacting the built environment in which we operate. It will always include the physical land or the building constructed on that land but it doesn’t stop there. What about the design of the building, its energy consumption and how technologically future-proof it is, how the land or building is financed (whether debt or equity), and the issues relating to public property companies? The list goes on...

At AG we bring together lawyers from different disciplines who operate in various parts of the world, all of whom have extensive experience advising in the real estate sector.

We have a number of dedicated teams specialising in specific asset classes of the real estate market. Whether our clients work in one specific area or across multiple sub-sectors, we offer insight, expertise and first-class legal advice driven by innovation, research and market intelligence.

Core Areas of Focus:


"The set up at AG is highly professional yet still human. The client feels special from the moment they walk through the door" – Legal 500 2022.
