Corporate Real Estate

Arnold & Porter has an extensive Corporate Real Estate practice. Our goal is to help our corporate clients realize the value of their real estate assets. We represent numerous companies—including publicly traded companies—in the development, design, construction (including build-to-suits), financing, sale, joint venturing, leasing, and disposition of their operating real estate assets. These representations frequently involve properties located in diverse geographical areas and special use properties such as mission critical data centers, research buildings, warehouse and industrial facilities, and company headquarters projects. These matters require our attorneys to collaborate closely with key executives in the facilities departments, operating divisions, and the offices of the general counsel and chief financial officer of our corporate clients.
