Real Estate Funds - China

Our lawyers bring clarity to the complex process of structuring real estate funds

One of King & Wood Mallesons’ strengths is assisting real estate funds on their investments in China. To structure, form, and represent real estate funds we draw on the extensive experience of our lawyers. This experience includes entity formation, real estate finance, securities, private equity and tax. It also includes extensive transactional experience, something that is particularly important in China.

When structuring real estate funds, there are complex issues to consider – including regulatory, tax and international structuring issues. Our team, which works closely with colleagues in Hong Kong and our other international offices, is well versed and experienced in advising on these issues. We have pioneered many structures in China and are constantly looking for new solutions to assist our clients in a tightly regulated area of practice.

Our lawyers’ technical capabilities help you navigate the legal issues associated with real estate funds. And they also have the business and transactional experience necessary to assist you as you seek to successfully operate your business. We strive to make the process as straightforward as possible. And we add as much value as possible by offering competitive fees, ensuring that each transaction is handled by an experienced member of our real estate group, and emphasising responsive client relationships.

We assist arrangers and financial institutions as well as borrowers – including developers, funds, limited partnerships, unit trusts and other institutional investors. They benefit from our advice on complex domestic and cross-border property and portfolio financing transactions (debt and equity), loan modifications, re-financings, participations and workouts.

We advise on:

  • Private equity funds
  • Real Estate investment trusts (REITs)
  • Hedge funds
  • Private equity investors.
