Leading offshore law firm and governance services provider, Mourant, has advised the family office of one of Hong Kong's "Big Four" families on the second successful launch of a new real estate investment fund and its first two UK acquisitions.
The second successor fund, which targets commercial real estate, has already made two initial investments in regional commercial real estate in the UK. The Hong Kong family office was the founder investor.
Mourant's global team provided Jersey structuring and banking advice to the Hong Kong based investment advisor. The team also assisted with the fund's indirect acquisition and financing of two UK properties in Nottingham and Leeds.
The Mourant team was led by Partners Joel Hernandez and Gareth Rigby, assisted by Counsel John MacFeeters and Neil McCarroll and Associates Ellie Oury and Andrew Haslett. Onshore law firms CMS Holborn Asia and TLT Solicitors in the UK also acted on the launch and initial acquisitions.
