Real estate in United States
Norton Rose Fulbright provides advice on real estate issues including joint ventures, acquisitions, financing, leasing and development, with the firm's clients including institutional and private equity investors, lenders, borrowers, landlords, tenants, developers and real estate advisors. The firm is adept at handling projects relating to industrial, multifamily and mixed-use properties, shopping centers, medical office buildings and hospital facilities, as well as developments in the energy sector. Austin-based US real estate head Jane Snoddy Smith represented a Melbourne-based developer on a $200m private equity joint venture for the financing and development of an urban multifamily mixed-use tower in Houston, Texas. Austin-based Josh Bernstein recently advised a developer on the acquisition and financing of a mixed-use development acquired via sealed bid auction from the Texas Department of Transportation; the investment is expected to exceed over $500m over several years. The New York team was strengthened by the addition of partners Jill Block and Marc Shapiro from Mayer Brown. Mitchell Lubart in New York is also recommended.
