Chiomenti is a leader in the Italian Real Estate market.

Through its Real Estate Practice Area, the Firm provides comprehensive advice to major national and international investors and operators in the Italian real estate market.

The Practice Area’s structure allows the Firm to form cross-practice teams, drawing on the best talents from its civil and corporate law, taxation, regulatory, financial, administrative and capital markets departments, depending on the needs of each transaction. This approach allows the Firm to provide the most effective response to the complex needs for advice arising on real estate transactions and to offer thorough and complete advice at all stages.

Chiomenti can advise clients on all types of real estate transactions, from development to acquisition/divestment (including through real estate funds or SICAFs), leasing and management of real estate assets.

The Firm has developed extensive experience in the financing aspects of real estate transactions (loans, debt restructuring, securitisation) and in relevant regulatory frameworks (the AIFMD directive, investment funds, SICAFs, master-feeder structures), as well as transfers of receivables secured by real estate, and real estate capital markets transactions (fund listings and REITs).

Chiomenti has gained a wealth of experience in the sector by participating in the principal real estate transactions carried out in Italy since the introduction of new laws on real estate funds in 2001 and on listed real estate investment companies - REIT - in 2006. Also in light of its role on transactions involving state-owned real estate, the Firm continues to play a leading role in guiding the development of industry practice, liaising with competent authorities regarding relevant legal developments.



  • A Practice Area is entirely devoted to the Real Estate sector. The Practice Area comprises professionals who, combining their respective experience in various of the Firm’s practice areas (M&A, civil, tax, regulatory, finance, administrative, capital markets) offer coordinated and comprehensive advice to best meet client needs.
