We advise on the structuring of real estate investments, be it through real estate investment companies or real estate investment funds as well as in club deals. In the context of asset management by banks and larger pension funds unlisted and unregulated investment vehicles may be set up. In relation to products for the retail market a focus of our practice is on the incorporation and listing of real estate investment companies and on the authorisation of fund managers and real estate funds. We have a strong focus on the setting up of such structures, including the creation of the documents required for the investors from shareholder agreements in club deals to prospectuses in the case of listed companies. Our team advises on the listing of investment companies on Swiss stock exchanges or the obtaining of FINMA licenses for fund management companies and real estate funds.
We continue to advise investment vehicles through their investment cycle. This includes capital markets law, corporate law and financial market regulations. Regular topics are also the regulatory limitations on the investment by foreigners into Swiss real estate, the so-called Lex Koller and advice on environmental law issues.
Our partners are on boards of real estate investment companies and real estate investment funds.
