Transaction consulting

Wüest Partner regards the structuring and management of complex transactions both nationally and internationally as one of its particular strengths. Having consulted numerous buyers and sellers in real estate transactions over many years, we draw on a wealth of experience. This applies to single investment-property transactions, development projects and larger development sites as well as sale-and-rent-back businesses, land severance, portfolio transactions, sales of real estate companies (share deals), IPOs and asset swaps.

For successful sales, it is crucial to organise and combine various specialist disciplines in the transaction team. When preparing for the sale, sellers are advised to analyse their own property in detail, through the scrutinising eyes of potential buyers, in order to be optimally prepared for all critical questions in the transaction process. During this process, we take care of the following tasks for you:

  • Coordination
  • Agenda setting
  • Team building, including the selection of specialists such as lawyers, tax consultants, fronting and placement partners, environmental specialists and construction experts
  • Creation of sales documentation
  • Data room setup
  • Organising and conducting the due diligence
