The last time Who’s Who Legal examined the real estate markets in June 2009 we signed off our analysis by noting the decline of the real estate department as a major fee earner in full-service law firms.
The property market in the CIS has seen a drop-off in transactional work over the past year, and the lawyers we consulted are finding their restructuring and advisory skills are increasingly in demand. We feature 31 lawyers from seven jurisdictions in this chapter, which combines lawyers with construction and real estate backgrounds.
The International Who's Who of Real Estate Lawyers 2009 identifies 467 lawyers in 37 countries.
In 2007, following a decade of continual growth, the real estate markets began to slow as financing contracted and prices fell.
Fifty-five leading real estate attorneys were chosen for this chapter. They have a wide range of specialisms from real estate funding to land use and sales. Although in the past year there has been a reported fall in the price of housing and commercial property markets in California, the talent of these lawyers has enabled them to maintain strong real estate practices.
