Rapid developments in the global economic environment have increased the need for sustainable long-term investment returns and have boosted the Alternative Asset Classes to the forefront. Whilst transactions in this space can create secure and long-term financial returns, there is a need for a dedicated professional team to manage any legal risks arising during the process. Our Alternative Asset Classes Group includes specialists from across our Real Estate department focusing on Finance, Tax, Planning, Development, Asset Management, Construction as well as Rights of Light and Intellectual Property. The Group acts for leading developers and operators in the Build to Rent, Student Accommodation and Senior Living sectors and has advised on over £2 billion of student accommodation transactions alone. With this experience, we have developed an extensive knowledge of the challenges that face developers and operators in these sectors.
