Real Estate Law and Property Transactions

COMPREHENSIVE ADVICE AT ALL STAGES OF THE PROPERTY LIFE CYCLE

As a leading European financial center and capital, Luxembourg creates a continuous demand for office, residential and commercial spaces. This demand is further driven by the ongoing development of the industrial sector. This situation continues to attract real-estate developers and investors from all over the world, who on top of a profitable real-estate market, can benefit from a reliable and stable legal framework.

Our dedicated and experienced team of lawyers provides comprehensive advice throughout the entire property life  – from the acquisition, through the structuring, holding of vehicles, financing, planning, building and leasing, to the sale. We run complex property transactions and construction projects for the public sector and private companies, as well as for domestic property developers and international investors.

Luther joined forces with the tax advisory firm Atoz to provide a unique structuring and implementation solution for the acquisition of assets located in Luxembourg. Together we deliver a comprehensive set of tax, legal, financial and real estate advisory services, throughout the entire development cycle of a property, all under one roof.

Our lawyers combine expertise in the fields of a real estate,  corporate law, M&A and private equity as well as banking and litigation. Internationally, we provide our services in close cooperation and with the support of our dedicated experts based in Germany, both in real estate law and property transactions.
