Real Estate Joint Ventures

Strategic legal advice across the lifecycle of a joint venture

Goodwin’s global Real Estate Joint Ventures practice helps clients navigate complex issues and challenges that arise when structuring, forming, owning, financing, developing, leasing, and operating real estate assets across a broad range of legal structures.

Throughout the lifecycle of a real estate investment, we regularly structure and close single-asset joint ventures, development joint ventures, portfolio and programmatic joint ventures, roll-ups and recapitalizations (including redemptions), and preferred equity investments across all asset classes, advising clients with respect to:

  • Governance, including major decision approval and removal rights
  • Economics, including complex waterfalls
  • Clawback provisions
  • Crystallization and other liquidity rights
  • Dispute resolution
  • Restructuring and recapitalization
  • Exit rights
  • Tax matters, including tax distribution provisions
  • REIT and/or UBTI sensitivities, including “fractions rule” compliance

We integrate multidisciplinary expertise from our Real Estate Tax, ERISA & Executive Compensation, Securities Litigation & SEC Enforcement, Real Estate Design & Construction, Leasing, and Litigation teams to represent clients with respect to all asset classes, including:

  • Hospitality and leisure
  • Industrial and logistics, including cold storage
  • Multifamily
  • Office, including medical office
  • Condominiums
  • Single family rental (SFR)
