Real Estate Capital Markets

Leading since 1960.

For over 50 years, clients have relied on Goodwin Procter’s legal acumen to help them buy, sell, finance and restructure real estate. Our lawyers represent numerous real estate investment managers, real estate fund sponsors, public and private REITs and municipalities in all aspects of raising and deploying capital. We work with owners, managers, operators, developers, lenders and investors – helping them acquire, develop, manage and sell real estate assets.  We were also instrumental in helping draft the Real Estate Investment Trust Act of 1960, establishing the UPREIT structure in 1992 and creating the LTIP structure in 2001.

With more than 100 attorneys focused solely on the real estate industry across the United States and Europe, Goodwin Procter covers every corner of this complex and dynamic industry. Our vast experience includes sophisticated equity and debt investment transactions, private and public fund raising, public and private REIT structuring, debt, capital raising and transactional work, hospitality and leisure transactions, large-scale development and public finance investment work and acquisition, construction, sales and leasing transactions.

Chambers USA consistently ranks Goodwin as Tier 1 in Real Estate Capital Markets, and most recently recognized 23 of our real estate partners for excellence. The Legal 500 UK recognized our team for excellence in three real estate categories and for investment funds. Private Equity Real Estate magazine twice named Goodwin Procter North American Law Firm of the Year for Transactions and for Fund Formation in five out of the past seven years.
