MoFo Signs on as Lead Sponsor for PERE Asia 2019
Morrison & Foerster will be a lead sponsor for PERE Asia’s 12th annual summit, which will take place on March 6 and 7 in Hong Kong.
In addition to the Firm sponsoring the event, Asia managing partner and managing partner of the Firm’s Singapore office Eric Piesner will speak on a panel titled “When Boutique is Best: Is the era of the pan-Asian fund coming to an end?” alongside other industry leaders. The panel will provide a deeper dive into what is driving allocation of funds by investors, and will explore potential trends relating to country-specific fund allocation and pan-regional strategies. Mr. Piesner, who also heads Morrison & Foerster’s award-winning Asia real estate practice, has significant experience working with all major real estate asset classes – particularly logistics, industrial, office and hospitality properties – across the region and worldwide.
The uniqueness of the Firm’s real estate practice is not only in the scale of our offering, with over 40 attorneys in the region focused on transactions and disputes in the real estate industry, but also in the depth of our 20 years of experience with real estate as a dedicated practice in Asia. We boast exemplary experience in guiding clients through all stages of the real estate investment cycle, including the formation of funds and fund platforms, equity syndications, multi-investor club deals, joint ventures, acquisitions, financings, development projects, dispositions and exits, across a broad range of asset classes. The breadth and volume of the transactions we handle in the Asia real estate industry speak for themselves – since 2016, we have advised on more than 60 significant real estate transactions in Asia with total deal value in excess of US$60 billion, including the US$11.64 billion privatization GLP Pte Ltd (winner of 2017 Global PERE Awards Asia-Pacific Deal of the Year) and the formation of the US$1.2 billion IndoSpace Logistic Parks III, the largest logistics real estate fund ever raised in India.
Already the largest private equity real estate conference in the region, this year’s PERE Asia summit is expected to host over 500 of the world’s top real estate professionals, fund managers, and institutional investors.
