Acquisitions and Dispositions
Arnold & Porter Real Estate attorneys handle all aspects of sales and purchases of real estate. These projects include single property transactions, transfers of portfolios, ground leases, 1031 tax-free exchanges, investments in owners of real estate, real estate investment trust (REIT) unit transactions, "loan-to-own" transactions, foreclosures on debt secured by real estate, other distressed debt workouts, and sale/leasebacks.
Our practice covers all asset types, including hospitality, office, corporate headquarters, complex mixed-use property, retail, residential, raw land, industrial and warehouse property, agricultural property, data centers, and biotech and life sciences labs.
Investors, developers, lenders, buyers, and sellers look to the in-depth knowledge of our attorneys for creative solutions, as well as practical and market-based advice in structuring deals, performing due diligence, negotiating, and drafting documentation. On many transactions, we work closely with colleagues from our other practice groups—such as Tax, Bankruptcy and Restructuring, and Environmental—to provide a full array of legal services.
