Real Estate

With substantial real estate industry experience, the members of the Real Estate Practice Group at Baker Botts handle a wide range of sophisticated transactions for nearly every product type across the entire United States and internationally. What distinguishes us from many law firms is our small, cost-effective teams and our expansive knowledge of real estate fundamentals and the real estate industry.

Real Estate and Construction

Our lawyers advise clients in all aspects of commercial real estate, including acquisitions, dispositions, development, financings, refinancings, construction, and management, relating to millions of square feet of office, industrial, retail and other commercial projects. We have decades of experience in representing landlords and tenants in all aspects of real property leasing, including representing our clients in build-to-suit, headquarters and other major leases of all real estate product types in connection with corporate relocations, lease renewals and expansions.

Additionally, we have significant experience in drafting and negotiating joint ventures between institutional investors and leading real estate firms. Our experience is built upon a broad base of transactions involving the development and financing of capital-intensive projects throughout the world.
