One stop shop for the built environment industry

Cities are changing to meet technological advances, growing populations, evolving hotel and leisure patterns and the renewal of our social infrastructure. In a world of low returns, these cities present huge opportunities across the risk spectrum. Indeed US$1 trillion is expected to be invested annually into this market by 2020.

Ashurst is at the forefront of advising investors, developers, financiers, owners and occupiers across the built environment market and the many sectors within it - from offices to hospitals, from shopping centres to universities, from large scale residential and hotels & leisure destinations to prisons.

With our one stop shop offer, this allows us to work with our clients on landmark, first of a kind deals across the full range of practice groups, helping them to achieve their business goals.

Partnering with leading clients

Through our broad ranging experience across real estate and social infrastructure, we have partnered with some of the world's leading investors, developers, owners and occupiers on a global, national and local scale. Acting for investors, lenders and borrowers also means we have a comprehensive understanding of how transactions are structured and funded. Our ability to work on all sides of a transaction means our clients can trust us to deliver on all commercial and legal issues.

Global expertise, local knowledge

With our local industry and legal knowledge combined with our cross border expertise, we are well placed to advise on the flow of capital from its source, through to support in the key markets where that capital is invested and assist with the development and maintenance of the asset. We believe our shared global knowledge base provides a real commercial advantage for our clients.

Value creation

By looking at the built environment as a whole, rather than separate areas, we believe this more cohesive approach creates value for our clients by generating better return on investment, exploiting connected opportunities and applying a similar base of knowledge required for both real estate and infrastructure investment.

The extremely reliable team gives clients the comfort that every possible legal and commercial issue in a transaction is taken care of. LEGAL 500, 2015
