B2B: New Legal Challenges on the Real Estate Market

Current situation with low availability of external financing raises the need for complex alternative commercial and legal arrangements on real estate transactions.

We have seen in 2015 several complex floating fee deals as well as transactions providing for seller's and purchaser's extended post-closing cooperation in several development projects.

Equity financing now usually requires complex project implementation, management and return arrangements.

This is coupled with the ongoing reform of Russian contract and corporate law, which provides for more remedies and operational freedom; but, at the same, is becoming more complex and requiring greater attention to detail at all stages of transactions, starting from commencement of negotiations.

This may lead to increased legal risks.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
