Property

The property industry is as hot as it has ever been. The 25,000 official delegates – and hundreds more unofficial hangers-on – at the annual Mipim property conference last week (12-16 March) proved that.

As with business, the environment is the hot topic for property lawyers right now – how to make developments sustainable, or how to make the construction process environmentally friendly.

This Property Special Report takes a look at the issues surrounding the ‘right to light’, and how London’s planned skyscrapers might be affected.

This year has also seen the long-awaited introduction of real estate investment trusts, and this Special Report investigates if the results have lived up to the hype.

It also examines the development of the European market and how law firms are dealing with the challenges. You can hear our exclusive Mipim report on www.thelawyerpodcast.com.
