Moroğlu Arseven combines expertise from across a range of practice areas to support construction and real estate clients throughout the complete life-cycle of complicated real estate and construction projects. When problems arise in the real estate or construction sector, these often cause significant flow-on consequences, involving cross-border legal issues, complicated dispute resolution procedures, as well as high-value disputes. Accordingly, a strategic approach to legal issues in these sectors is particularly necessary.
The firm supports a diverse range of local and foreign industry players, assisting them to develop strategic and cost-effective approaches to complete their projects or address problems in the construction or real estate sectors. Our clients include landowners, developers, general contractors and sub-contractors, operators, owners/lessors, lessees, lenders, private and institutional investors, REITs, construction engineers, underwriters, engineers, architects, surveyors and other related professionals or project stakeholders.
Moroğlu Arseven supports clients through all aspects of transactional real estate and construction law issues. The firm offers end-to-end legal assistance, ranging from due diligence of the site or counterparty, through to advising on a transaction’s structure, finance or security arrangements. We also support with post-transaction issues, ongoing regulatory compliance, as well as disposing and divesting real estate, or project-related assets.
We regularly support clients to negotiate and prepare transaction documents for acquiring and developing real estate, design and feasibility work, prepare tender bids, bid protests, deal with consortium issues, leases and facility management arrangements, as well as all aspects of development, construction, EPC and sub-contractor contracts. The firm also offers comprehensive guidance to clients when preparing and filing documents with government authorities, as well as obtaining the necessary licenses and government clearances.
The firm’s finance experience includes all aspects of debt and equity involvement in real estate or construction transactions. Our assistance involves supporting clients with term-sheet and financial structuring stages, through to closing, tranching, syndication and securitisation, administration, servicing and restructuring.
Sustainability considerations and environmental consents play crucial roles in real estate and construction projects. We assist clients with all aspects of obtaining and maintaining these permits, as well as dealing with site-related legal encumbrances, such as liens, usufruct or easement rights.
