Whether you’re a global fund launching into Europe through London, or a homegrown UK investment firm, we can help you navigate through the complete lifecycle of challenges associated with realising opportunities. Our lawyers are deeply experienced in the European premium real estate and private equity sectors. We think like investors to develop innovative deal structures and draw upon our vast jurisdictional knowledge of the European legal landscape and local networks to help you thrive in an increasingly competitive market.
We provide a genuinely integrated offering across the real estate industry: from structuring real estate funds, products and vehicles, to the acquisition, financing, development and disposal of real estate assets through direct and indirect investments, as well as complex international hospitality and leisure transactions.
Outside the real estate sector, our expanding team advises on private equity, venture capital, leveraged finance, mezzanine debt as well as M&A, infrastructure funds and other investment vehicles, together with specialist compliance, regulatory and tax advisory work.
In 2017, we were recognized as one of the top 30 global firms in London by Legal Business’ Global London Survey, and — with a 132% year-over-year headcount increase — as one of the fastest-growing firms in the city’s market. The survey noted that, over the past year, “Goodwin focused on building out its private equity offering, with the arrival of a team including key KWM figures Michael Halford, Ajay Pathak and Ed Hall, as well as a team into its Paris office.”
