Striving to increase the value of real estate portfolios, the team provides ongoing support with respect to existing lease agreements and advice on property management.

We prepare investments and handle zoning matters, environmental issues, building permits, and other sector-specific permits.
The team drafts and negotiates construction contracts, including FIDIC-based contracts, assists in dealing with utility providers, and provides comprehensive assistance spanning the entire construction process.
Penteris is also experienced in matters involving the preservation of historical monuments and archaeological sites.
Financing of real estate
With experience in acting for both lenders and borrowers, we offer a broader perspective, making financing projects happen. This includes real estate financing, project finance and acquisition finance. Furthermore, we have added further to our ranks, by bringing in more talented associates to help support the ever-growing pipeline of financing and refinancings.

We are well-placed to undertake legal due diligence of any size and assist in resolving identified issues, including potential reprivatisation and restitution claims.
The team is skilled in transaction structure optimisation, including optimisation of corporate, tax, and financial aspects of cross-border transactions.
We provide comprehensive assistance during transactions, e.g. by participating in negotiations and drafting the necessary documents.
The team’s experience, versatility, and size enables us to handle with equal care small, medium-sized, and highly complex and challenging transactions, including portfolio transactions. Such projects often involve banks, mezzanine finance providers, guarantors, and investment clubs.
