Real estate at RITTERSHAUS: We look after our clients’ real estate during its entire life cycle

We advise our clients on real estate law during the entire life cycle of their properties – from small projects to complex developments and transactions. The life-cycle approach that we practise extends to all questions concerning real estate law and building law. The real estate team at RITTERSHAUS comprises 28 professional experts in total; we are there for all stakeholders involved in the value creation chain of real estate.


Our advice considers all aspects of civil law, public law, and tax law. This means that we help you assess and acquire suitable plots; we assist you with the development of building land, the entire project delivery, and any construction-related legal advice as well as with the maintenance of your property portfolio; we also advise you on complex transactions involving share or asset deals including potential issues concerning financing regulations.


We know our industry not only because we are involved in large transactions but also because we handle projects on a day-to-day basis, in and out of court. On balance, only those who “know the ins and outs of real estate” can, later on, provide a realistic evaluation of transactions and get rid of obstacles before they turn into problems. At our Frankfurt office our notaries are available for certifications.
