Operational Real Estate

Helping real estate investors boost returns through operations

Goodwin is at the forefront of operational real estate (ORE), representing more than 550 investors, managers, advisors, sponsors, and operating companies as they optimize the financial and operating structures of their real estate and private equity investments.

ORE is growing rapidly because it offers attractive returns to investors that can meet the demands of occupiers with an appetite for new services and amenities across a range of asset classes, including:

  • Multifamily
  • Student accommodation
  • Hospitality, gaming, and leisure
  • Healthcare
  • Life sciences
  • Senior and later living
  • Clean energy
  • Film, TV, and sound studios

As ORE grows, real estate investments have become more dynamic and operationally intensive, and the approaches of real estate and private equity investors have converged.

Our global Real Estate practice comprises a cross-disciplinary team of experts in areas such as M&A, finance, operational structures, tax, employment, regulation, and litigation to help clients capture the opportunities and navigate the risks of investing in operational assets.
