Real Estate M&A

Wachtell Lipton’s Real Estate Department has a leading practice focused on mergers and acquisitions, private equity, corporate governance, restructurings and joint ventures across the REIT, real estate, hospitality and gaming sectors. We consistently play an active role in major transactions in these sectors, with particular emphasis on large-scale public company M&A and strategic transactions. We have played a leading role in the redevelopment of the World Trade Center and in many of the significant REIT mergers, buyouts and takeovers over the last decade.

Our lawyers are consistently ranked as leading real estate and REIT M&A advisors, and write and speak frequently on these topics, including the REITS: Mergers and Acquisitions treatise, The Real Estate M&A and Private Equity Review, and the other publications listed below and here. They also co-chair NYU’s and PLI’s annual conferences on REITs and REIT M&A.
