Our Real Estate and Construction practice

Our team has significant experience in construction and real estate matters. We are able to spot opportunities in the market and are well aware of potential challenges that clients may face. Our lawyers work extensively with land related legislation in various regions of Russia.

Our primary focus is to help manage risk across all projects, including leases and construction contracts, and complex infrastructure engineering projects. We also advise on real estate tax matters and help create appropriate corporate structures in terms of taxation and financing as part of large construction projects.
