Prof. Dr. Isabelle Romy elected as Director and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Central Real Estate Holding AG and Central Real Estate Basel AG | 3 September 2019
At their extraordinary general meeting of September 2, 2019 the shareholders of the real estate investment company Central Real Estate Holding AG in Zurich and its subsidiary Central Real Estate Basel AG elected FRORIEP’s partner Isabelle Romy as director and chairman of the board of both companies.
In May 2019, FRORIEP advised the Central Real Estate Group in connection with the acquisition from Novartis of a large area of 160’000 m2 within the Klybeck area in Basel. This is the largest real estate transaction of the recent years in Switzerland and this will be the largest real estate development project in a central city location in Switzerland over the next years. The involvement of FRORIEP both in the transaction and in the development project going forward showcases Froriep’s capabilities in structuring and handling complex real estate investments.
Prof. Dr. Isabelle Romy is a leading expert in environmental and construction law in Switzerland, and regularly advises private companies and public bodies in these areas, including in environmental litigation. Her practice focuses also on international litigation, arbitration and private international law in commercial matters.
