GKH offers top-tier legal representation in domestic and international real estate transactions, development projects and disputes. Our Real Estate Practice serves clients in inbound and outbound transactions involving development, acquisition, financing, leasing, zoning, environmental issues and real estate tax planning. We serve Israeli clients with ongoing legal advice and services in connection with large-scale residential and commercial projects throughout the country. We represent developers and investors in a wide range of commercial, residential, hotel and infrastructure projects in Israel. Our clients include luxury residential developers, hotel operators, retail and office tower developers, international hotel and retail chains, and financial institutions.

Our Real Estate Practice is also active in representing Israeli companies in real estate development and investment in the United States, Europe, Russia and the Far East. Our international real estate lawyers manage these transactions directly with local counsel, and assist our clients in understanding the issues presented by each transaction, providing guidance on real estate, corporate and tax issues, and their implications.

Our real estate practice also advises multi-national contractors in local construction and development projects, and guides them through public tenders for national infrastructure projects. We also have unique expertise in counseling international real estate developers, investors and financial institutions in connection with their activities in Israel. Our real estate department includes attorneys that have practiced commercial real estate in the United States and who have the ability to familiarize our international clients with the business and legal considerations that arise in real estate transactions in Israel. In managing these transactions, we provide a complete legal review of prospective properties that meet our international clients’ underwriting requirements.

Over the past three years we have developed the most active international Real Estate practice in Israel. With a team of US and European trained real estate lawyers, we focus on real estate acquisitions in the United States and Europe by Israeli institutional investors and public companies. We represent our clients in all aspects of the transactions including joint venture agreements and property acquisition due diligence.

GKH has a strong leasing practice which focuses on representing domestic and international clients in office, commercial and industrial leasing transactions in Israel. We routinely represent tenants in leasing transactions for office and other space in the largest office developments in Israel.
