We combine our market-leading technology and real estate industry credentials to provide comprehensive support to clients operating in the real estate technology/proptech sector.

As cutting-edge, emerging technologies continue to reshape the real estate sector, no firm is better suited to counsel clients through this period of historic transformation.

We combine the extensive experience and market awareness of our real estate group with the deep technical capabilities of a firm at the forefront of the technology industry. This allows us to provide proptech sector clients with nuanced guidance relating to emerging and disruptive technologies, many of which have outpaced the laws and regulations governing them.

We are trusted counsel to a diverse client base that spans this burgeoning sector, from innovative growth companies, to leading investors in real estate technologies, to traditional real estate companies implementing new technologies.

We partner with our clients on the full lifecycle of their proptech innovations, advising on company formation and patent applications, commercial transactions, M&A transactions, intellectual property strategy, privacy and data security policies and litigation, employment issues, tax, corporate finance, and, should it arise, complex, high-stakes litigation of all types.
