Real estate has emerged as an attractive long-term investment for investors seeking diversification and stable yields in an uncertain economy. As a sector, real estate must both compete with other investment classes and offer a desirable product to end-users whether they are buying or leasing. In addition, many traditional real estate investors are looking to acquire portfolios that transcend borders resulting in the emergence of a global real estate industry.

DLA Piper's global team of 500 lawyers devoted to the real estate sector assists clients throughout the entire life cycle of their investments, wherever in the world the business takes them.
