Property & Construction Investment

 

The property and the construction sectors continue to prosper in Australia, despite fluctuating market conditions. There remains ongoing interest from Australian and overseas investors in property and construction opportunities, which often require complex and highly structured deals.

Our banking and finance team is known for their expertise in advising borrowers, lenders, funds and other participants on property and construction transactions. Our market reputation stems from our ability to provide commercial advice that addresses legal, regulatory and business requirements and our ability to offer a multidisciplinary perspective on every matter.
