Real Estate Horizons is a snapshot of key legal topics and market trends across the globe.

The year ahead: are you ready?

By Jackie Newstead, Global Head of Real Estate

2019 promises to be an eventful year but, despite ongoing political and economic uncertainty, real estate globally continues to attract record levels of international capital. Will that continue? Inevitably, attention will focus on the global effect of Brexit and whether and to what extent that triggers a shift in market appetite for investment in the UK and beyond.

Whilst the market strives to keep pace with changes within the macro and micro political climate, technological changes continue to change the way we work and the ways in which deals can be done. Blockchain, PropTech, tokenization, and cyber security are all concepts that are becoming increasingly familiar.

Our strategy is to anticipate and monitor how clients can adapt to change and be ready for the year ahead. Not only does our international network mean that we are adept at dealing with a wide range of cross-border issues, but our offices throughout the world have the knowledge to offer both global and local solutions, ranging from effective deal structuring to PropTech and investment in student accommodation.

Real Estate Horizons is a snapshot of key legal topics and market trends across the globe. If you would like to explore any of the issues further, please speak to one of the contacts listed, or to any partner from our global industry sector.
