Minter Ellison’s real-estate team is one of the largest in Australia with 36 partners and more than 140 lawyers nationally. We deliver a comprehensive range of property-related legal services for developers, investors, owners, landlords, property fund managers and governments.
The size and scope of our team in terms of technical capability, transaction experience and geographic spread is second to none. We practise in the areas of urban renewal, transit-oriented development, large-scale property transactions, distressed sales, retirement villages, telecommunications roll-outs and retail and commercial leasing.
We are a trusted adviser to many state governments and government-owned corporations and have assisted in the delivery of billion-dollar hospitals, schools and prison developments, major urban regeneration projects and transit-oriented developments. We have acted in the divestment and privatisation of airports and ports and in securing linear land corridors for major infrastructure investment in the energy and resources sector.
Our clients include the Queensland government, Places Victoria, East Perth Redevelopment Authority, Port of Melbourne Authority, Railcorp, QRN, North Queensland Bulk Ports and Sydney Ports Corporation.
We also act for leading institutional property investors and developers including Westfield, DEXUS, AMP, Colonial First State Global Asset Management, Australand, Mirvac and Brookfield Multiplex.
We are unique among major law firms in our ability to provide our national clients with leasing and property portfolio management services Australia-wide. Our services are supported by state-of-the-art online reporting and document storage/retrieval systems and workflow management tools.
We are pre-eminent in the retirement villages sector with industry heavyweights FKP Limited, Lend Lease Primelife and Aevum as key national clients.
Having acted for SingTel Optus in all its telecommunications roll-outs for many years, we also have unmatched experience and capability in the telecommunications sector.
Our real estate practice is supported by a leading environment and planning practice, which international directories consistently rank as a Tier 1 practice. Among Australian law firms, we are the only truly national environmental law practice with particular expertise in project approvals and licences to operate.
