Fidal: serving the property market
To be competitive, 21st century real estate must be interactive and in concordance with sustainable development. Fidal’s real estate department, composed of 30 specialized lawyers, meets these demands.
Our urban planning lawyers analyze the constraints and opportunities resulting from the location of the property. The environmental risks are managed through custom-made contract provisions. Fidal assists in the negotiation, drafting and execution of the project management scheme and verifies the relevant compliance constraints. In the area of leasing, Fidal has a team dedicated to commercial, civil and professional leases that assists investors and users, both in an advisory and litigation role.
Upon the sale of property, our transactional attorneys advise buyers and sellers in the negotiations. Lastly, our real estate tax specialists advise the various players on the choice of the most appropriate tax regimes and structures. For each engagement, a single contact oversees a team of specialized lawyers.
Tax advice and assistance with real estate transactions
Real estate investments and structuring
Assistance to listed real estate investment companies and regulated vehicles (SIIC)
We assist you in fundraising, IPOs and public offerings, as well as in the creation of OPCIs (Open-ended Property Funds) and REITS, the acquisition and outsourcing of real estate portfolios and the entry of new players into the SIIC regime.
Real estate asset management: commercial leases, audits and restructuring
We assist clients in portfolio audits, in the drafting and negotiation of leases, in restructuring operations, mergers or relocation of groups of companies, in the revaluation of rental assets, and also assist investors and users in the event of disputes (rent control, eviction indemnities, renewal and termination, refundable expenses and work).
Construction and development
Public construction and PPPs (Public-Private Partnerships)
We get involved early on (defining contractual arrangements doing the legal and financial structuring, reviewing the project's bankability or validating the tax assumptions underlying the model) by monitoring and executing the contracts up to the pre-litigation and litigation phases, if necessary.
Urban planning and development
Our team dedicated to urban planning deals specifically with issues related to building permits, urban planning authorizations, development concessions or even urban planning taxation and financial contributions (development tax, fee, PUP (Urban Partnership Project), contributions from builders and developers).
Our scope of intervention covers site rehabilitation operations when the activity is completed, as well as the negotiation and regularization of deeds of sale and leasing, while factoring in the environmental dimension, or the implementation of boilerplate environmental clauses, as part of commercial leases, and the management of disputes.
