Businesses around the world are trying to maximize the efficiency of their real estate portfolios. Whether you rent space in a single location or have real estate investments in dozens of countries, optimizing the value of "bricks and mortar" is a complex matter requiring high-level business and legal support.
There is risk in what you do — and what you don't. Acquiring new office space. Disposing or leasing property. Investing in real estate across borders. Whatever real estate challenge your business faces, it is important to manage it in a way that optimizes returns and minimizes costs and disruptions.
