Property

More than bricks and mortar


“Done deal.” We love the way that rolls off the tongue. It’s our job to get your deals over the line on time and in budget no matter how complex.

We like to give clients technical advice without the jargon, taking into account the commercial imperative of transactions and aiming to “get the deal done” without sacrificing clients’ options, rights or entitlements. We keep it real—even the commercial side—across all areas of property and developments, including acquisitions and disposals, property advocacy, drafting and negotiating project delivery agreements, development management, deeds and joint venture agreements, titling, subdivision, strata conversion and commercial, industrial and retail leasing.

From inception through to completion, we assist with site acquisition, providing advice on structuring purchases for maximum benefit, dealing with planning and development approval issues and, if necessary, taking on appeals and documenting any transactional agreements. Off-the-plan sales—we’re on the mark. We also advise on optimum titling and subdivision platforms, and draft the easements, restrictions, covenants and by-laws.

We regularly act on the acquisition or divestment of commercial office buildings and shopping centres, which includes undertaking due diligence on acquisitions, while our acquisitions team advises on stamp duty and GST.

We help you realise your business goals. We document and negotiate debt and equity funding, joint venture structuring and financing, and secured loan transactions. With the added bonus of our aforementioned acquisition team on hand, they help us avoid delays by reviewing and negotiating the funding documentation for purchases.

We work on a range of routine and bespoke retail, commercial and industrial leasing matters, including Australia-wide leasing portfolios for various institutions.
