Private Equity and Joint Ventures
With the real estate market recovering from the downturn of the late 2000s and clients seeking to either recapitalize existing properties or acquire new properties at attractive pricing, Sidley’s Real Estate practice has been involved in many high profile private equity and joint venture transactions. We represent an array of domestic and international clients, including investment banks, opportunity and private equity funds, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, bank affiliates, public and private REITs, and other similar investment vehicles that own all asset classes of real estate (both individual and portfolio), such as office, retail, multi-family and industrial/logistics properties.
In representing both operating and capital partners, our real estate lawyers and supporting practice disciplines are knowledgeable on current market trends and well positioned to guide our clients through complex issues that arise in the negotiation of joint venture agreements. Working closely with our colleagues in Tax and ERISA, our lawyers structure, negotiate and craft documents appropriate for each particular venture as well as the investment parameters and structuring requirements of our clients.
