Real estate

Within: Real estate

Baker McKenzie increased its bench strength by adding real estate finance expert Filip Kurkowski from Allen & Overy LLP, who constitutes one of the main contacts for real estate work along with Florian Thamm and Ulrich Hennings. The team advised Maple Knoll Capital and European Commercial Real Estate on the acquisition of four commercial properties in Landshut, and assisted Hochtief Projektentwicklung with the sale of the Mercatura shopping centre in Aalen to TH Real Estate. In other significant work, the practice acted for an international IT provider in the sale of eight data centres in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the “Lease Law”) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the “Obligations Code”). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the “New Obligations Code”), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
