Real Estate

Understanding that the local real estate market requires expertise in a variety of fields of law, we have formed a team capable of advising our clients on all their needs in this field. This team assists our clients in their real estate ventures in Costa Rica, as well as related businesses like tourism and hospitality, manufacturing facilities under the Free Trade Zone Regime, shopping centers and office complexes, and residential projects, among others.

In addition to daily advisory on new projects, in recent years we have engaged in real estate developments that today account for over 1.5 million square meters of built area, becoming without a doubt the country’s most experienced real estate law firm, advising our clients on all fields necessary, including, among others:

  • Financing
  • New project development
  • Building contracts and permits, including environmental permits
  • Lease of commercial properties, office space and manufacturing facilities
  • Asset restructuring
  • Life science projects
  • Mixed-use developments
  • Mergers and acquisitions of real estate businesses
  • Real estate development trusts
  • Tax structuring
  • Joint ventures
