Our combined Dublin, Limerick, Cork and London teams advise domestic and international investors, financial institutions, public bodies, developers, occupiers, retailers, and insolvency practitioners, on all aspects of property transactions and development projects across the full range of commercial property transactions including:-
- Investment Sales and Acquisitions
- Loan Portfolio Transfers
- Real Estate Funds
- Development Deals
- Lease Transactions
- Real Estate Finance.
We advise owners and developers on some of the largest mixed-use developments in Ireland.
Due to our vast range of practical property experience, we maintain our asset management role in many of these schemes. Our comprehensive property asset management legal service includes day-to-day management of large property investment portfolios, mixed-use schemes, shopping centres, office developments, retail parks and hotels. We advise on landlord and tenant issues including lease variations, exercise of break options, applications for consent, applications for licences, tenant default and rent reviews.
We have been heavily involved high-profile property investment transactions in recent years. We have amassed significant expertise in distressed real estate transactions, both direct investment and indirectly through loan portfolio acquisition. We are experienced in the tax efficient structuring of investment using property QIFs (Qualifying Investor Fund) and have acted for several funds in the conversion of their companies to ICAVs.
Our team also comprises a leading new homes unit with experienced specialists who advise on development site acquisition, planning and development, scheme setup and unit and bulk sales.
Our collaborative approach, one of Holmes’ real strengths, combines the experience and know-how of our property, construction, planning, procurement, finance, tax and corporate lawyers to help you achieve your goals and overcome the unique challenges real estate transactions and development projects can bring. We also work closely with our litigation team on all types of property and landlord and tenant disputes.
We have, over many decades, garnered a national and international reputation for excellence. This has cemented many instructions, both directly from internationally recognised real estate institutions and, indirectly, with top law firms in foreign jurisdictions.
