International law firm Ashurst has announced the next evolution of the firm's global real estate dispute resolution practice as part of an initiative to assist clients navigate the risks and liabilities of regional and multi-jurisdictional real estate investment.
The initiative focuses on providing clients with an integrated approach to commercial real estate disputes, derived from the firm's broad expertise in managing high-value, large and complex disputes, combined with extensive industry understanding to provide clients seamless real estate solutions from across Ashurst's network of international offices.
Alison Hardy, Ashurt’s head of real estate dispute resolution, said: "Over the past few years, real estate has become an increasingly global asset, and as such we are seeing increasing globalisation in real estate disputes work. International disputes are often complex – both legally and sometimes culturally, involving fusion of laws and, not infrequently, politics, and having a global real estate disputes group will allow us to offer a seamless service to our clients.
“By working together as one global team, we are able to pool resources, so that if clients need advice in a particular jurisdiction, we will have specialists in that location, and the global team to handle any size dispute."
Hardy joins EG's Jess Harrold in the Studio to further discuss the move, and how the global approach will benefit clients.
