Real Estate

Real estate law covers all laws and regulations related to real property. Think of such things as legal aspects of project development, project financing, selling, purchasing, leasing and letting, real estate agency, but also construction law. Legal expertise has become increasingly important, because the interests connected with real estate are continually growing and rules are complex.
