REAL ESTATE AND COMMERCIAL PROPERTY
The property sector is an integral part of the Australian economy and Oakley Thompson & Co offers a comprehensive range of property-related legal services for developers, investors, owners, landlords, property funds managers and listed property trusts.
Commercial property transactions are often complex. As a result, we have built a specialist property team that is passionate about the industry, and understands how deals are constructed and how to bring them to a successful conclusion. Importantly, our people are across all property sectors including retail, commercial, industrial and residential.
The majority of our work is with corporate clients, institutional investors and developers. We act for various parties that are often on different sides of a property transaction, providing us with a broad understanding of potential problems as well as opportunities.
Our team often draws on the experience of the wider firm in areas including funds management, tax, construction and corporate finance. This allows us to quickly build a multi-disciplinary team of specialists capable of skillfully addressing a diverse range of property issues.
Major transactions typically require quality legal advice around matters such as structuring, acquisition, finance, development and disposal. Oakley Thompson & Co also brings to the table formidable project management skills so that key milestones are met, risk is mitigated and stakeholders are fully aware of a project's progress.
