Building on this momentum requires developers and institutional investors to develop a keen understanding of the intricacies of this emerging asset class.

Due Diligence: We manage legal due diligence investigations for large and complex property acquisitions. Allens has been widely recognised as a leader in due diligence innovation, we have received awards for our due diligence REDDA technology.
Structuring and Tax: Allens frequently provides structuring and tax advice to developers and assists in the establishment of Managed Investment Trusts and other ownership vehicles. We understand how the decisions made at this stage can have a big impact on the developer’s feasibility and ongoing ownership costs for the property and regularly assist developers to implement the best strategy.
Acquisition: It is important for the results of the legal due diligence to be fed in to the acquisition negotiation process, so that any key risks identified during due diligence are appropriately addressed and mitigated.
Planning: Our national planning team is integrated with our property team, and our approach is property centric. Our clients include developers focused on retail, industrial, aged care, mixed use, residential and student accommodation.
Pre-commitment and pre-sales: Allens has acted on some of the most high profile tenancy pre‑commitment deals in recent years on both the landlord and tenant side.
Funding: Allens frequently advises on the use of the fund through model and has assisted to structure some of the largest fund through deals in Australia.
With a uniquely holistic approach to structuring and delivering development projects, the Allens team keeps critical interdependencies front of mind – from start to finish. Our clients have told us that, because of this interconnectedness, Allens' multidisciplinary team managing the entire process delivers the most value for them.
