Purpose of the Practice Group


Unlike movables, real estates are not transferable from one country to the other. Still there are quite a number of real property transfers with a border crossing backgrounds. Mentioned here as examples are real estate transactions in the context of M & A activities, the set-up of production facilities abroad, the purchase of vacation properties or enforcement upon foreign property. Hence, with regard to such activities there is a demand for legal cross-border know-how.

GGI has a considerable number of specialists in this respective area of expertise. The aim of the practice group is to first identify these specialists, make the collected know-how commonly usable for the members and to communicate the availability to our existing and potential clients. Therefore the practice group publishes a handbook which provides the opportunity to the practice group members

  • to introduce themselves as specialists for real estate law
  • to publish articles concerning real estate law
  • to explain their national real estate law

All GGI members are invited and very welcome to engage themselves in the practice group by means of articles to be published in the handbook and by attending our practice group meetings.
