The following questions that are worth addressing in a Red Flag DD on a real estate transaction will be addressed in an interactive way:

  • Are there any restrictions for foreign companies to buy commercial properties in your jurisdiction?
  • In which ways has ESG had an influence on real estate transactions in your jurisdiction? (Inspiration: Green Washing, EU-Taxonomy, W&I)
  • Which are the most attractive ways to finance commercial real estate investments? Does ESG have an impact on the this?
  • Which are the most significant caveats at real estate share deals/asset deals in your jurisdiction? (Tax, others?)
  • Has the COVID pandemic had an impact on the real estate market in your jurisdiction? (force majeure clauses, increased risk of tenant bankruptcies/restructuring or other clauses to watch for in the DD-process)
  • How much of lawyer’s work is substituted by artificial intelligence ?
  • How will we work when we will be again completely free to move around (travelling as before, home office, others?)
