Real Estate & Infrastructure

Real Estate Delivered Better

Investing in, developing, occupying and funding real estate assets has never been more complex. The asset class has established its place as a key element of the investment strategies of many of the world’s most significant international corporates and funds who are looking well beyond their domestic borders to fulfill their commercial needs.

While inadequate real estate and infrastructure is hampering growth in Africa, it also offers significant investment opportunities. Sustained investment in the key sectors of transport, telecommunications and energy will also unlock economic growth and improved access to critical social infrastructure (including public buildings, healthcare, education, water treatment and supply).

We help our clients at all stages of the economic life-cycle of infrastructure projects – from developing to acquiring to managing to restructuring to selling assets, including assisting with the necessary financing. Our team comprises specialists in mergers and acquisitions, project and asset financing, concessions and public private partnerships, construction, dispute resolution and regulatory compliance.
