Handling the full remit of real estate law, Greenberg Traurig Germany is praised for its ‘deep understanding of the market’ and its ‘solution-oriented and earnest’ advice. The team, which is led by the ‘well-connected’ and ‘outstanding personality’ Christian Schede, who is also noted for his ‘broad expertise’, increased its bench strength significantly by adding ten associates in 2017 and expanded at partner level with the promotions of Wencke Bäsler and Anika Mitzkait. In significant work, the team advised Oxford Properties and Madison International Reality on the acquisition of the Sony Center in Berlin for €1.1bn, and, in co-operation with its Amsterdam office, assisted Dream Global REIT with entering the Dutch market and the acquisition of Merin’s commercial real estate portfolio. ‘Outstanding lawyer and very good negotiator’ Florian Rösch advised several joint ventures on various real estate transactions and project developments. Peter Schorling is ‘an extremely talented lawyer’ and Claudia Hard is best known for her real estate finance expertise.
