        Real Estate

        DWF (Australia)’s Real Estate team includes senior lawyers with experience acting for clients in Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales. Located across four major cities along the east coast of Australia, our Real Estate team provides seamless transactional expertise and complex legal advice across all key areas of property and planning in each Australian jurisdiction.

        Everything we do within our Real Estate team is grounded in technical excellence and an understanding of our clients’ commercial objectives. Our team are constantly adapting to the changing property marketplace, as well as the needs of our clients as they advise on the buying, selling, leasing and development of residential and commercial land.

        Our Real Estate team have a proven track record for providing decisive, sustainable solutions and for advising at a strategic level throughout the real estate life cycle, rather than simply fighting fires. They work with their clients to bring to fruition the purchase or sale of their homes, developments (commercial, residential, industrial or retail), and investment properties. Projects for our clients can range from the traditional smaller or medium scale developments through to:

        large broad acre or high density residential developments;
        apartment towers;
        shopping centres;
        off the plan developments;
        industrial parks; and
        mixed use developments.

        Our property law specialists have also acted for a number of fund managers, financial institutions, public companies and government owned corporation, with respect to the acquisition and disposal of land (both publicly and privately held) the leasing of commercial and retail assets (both as landlord and tenant) as well as the restructuring of interests and ownership in land. We also house specialty conveyancing lawyers who act for high-end purchasers involved in more complex transactions, and a commercial leasing and land titles arm.
