Success is always well negotiated

In any situation, at any age - nothing we have to prove in life and especially in business as often as negotiation skills. It is neither the fastest nor the greatest who win at the end of the day. It is those who lay the foundation for future success through targeted negotiation and strategic action. Only those who negotiate their deals cleverly get what they want.

Whether it is the creation of a positioning concept, the development of an implementation strategy or the active leasing of the space – based on our experience, we can cover all success-critical areas with all associated legal aspects from a single source.

Retail Investment

We support you in the purchase and sale of retail real estate. In case of a sale, we take over the preparation of the real estate object including contract documentation. We accompany you as transaction managers during the sale of the property and assist you in all contract negotiations.

In the case of a purchase, we evaluate the economic and legal content of the existing contracts, prepare an economic due diligence and point out potentials and development concepts. Of course, we also accompany you on the buyer’s side in all necessary negotiation talks.

Our many years of experience in the M&A business allow us to act as an interface between all advisors, thus ensuring a rapid and efficient transaction process. Our knowledge of the market and the local market participants gives you the decisive edge to complete your transaction as smoothly as possible.
