Real Estate and Tourism

Back

Our real estate and tourism team has more than 20 lawyers with vast experience in real estate and corporate real estate matters.

Over the years, we have advised on major real estate transactions in Portugal and, in doing so, we have assisted our clients with a wide range of real estate matters. These include sale and purchase transactions, leasing and other forms of property management, sale and leaseback, forward funding and forward purchase, construction contracts, turnkey contracts, and asset management contracts.

We represent the market's main investors and developers in the sale, acquisition, marketing, operation, management, development, and rehabilitation of all types of real estate assets. Examples include office buildings, tourist and residential developments, and logistics parks.

In the tourism sector, we have acted for some of the most important investors and other operators, both Portuguese and foreign. We deal with projects from their inception, through the real estate structuring of the tourism project, the preparation and negotiation of the hotel management contracts, and the tourism operation contracts, to the marketing of accommodation units, among others. Our experience also includes helping clients to obtain the licences necessary to set up and operate leading tourism developments.

We bring our vast experience in the area of real estate law to each project, and we always establish a close relationship with our clients in a spirit of true partnership.
