Real Estate Transactions

TGS Baltic acts on some of the largest real estate transactions in the Baltics. (Legal 500)

Commercial and industrial property transactions are the cornerstone of our real estate expertise, including development financing, acquisitions, co-investment arrangements, exits, changing of leverage level, workouts, sale and leaseback transactions and other. We will help you to buy and sell properties for development projects, commercial and residential properties.

We step beyond pure legal advice and take an active part in the transaction and project management process. Acting for the best interests of the client, we build an understanding of the values and risk points of the parties involved in order to concentrate the negotiation effort on the key issues.
