Financial Services » Real Estate Investment Trusts

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) have very different needs from traditional property and real estate clients.

Given their dynamic sector is subject to powerful market forces, REITs need lawyers who understand the needs of the retail and wholesale property trust market and who can effectively work with clients’ teams to deliver optimum legal and commercial results.

Corrs’ ability to assemble national project teams with the most appropriate legal expertise and to meet the REIT market’s unique requirements ensures seamless delivery of practical and effective business solutions for our clients.
