Industry Overview

The real estate industry has witnessed significant transformation in both its daily business practices and financial underpinnings. Rapidly evolving consumer requirements and the arrival of “big data” to the sector are driving innovation in areas like home construction, retail development, and urban/suburban migration. Telecommuting and co-working are transforming workplaces, with implications that impact properties from languishing industrial spaces to technology-filled smart cities, introducing new legal hurdles to navigate and opportunities to explore.
