Expertise

"The firm provides excellent client service; it is very efficient and runs like clockwork."
Chambers Europe

At Matheson, we have one of the leading commercial property law practices in Ireland. We act in some of the largest and most high profile and significant property transactions occurring in the Irish market.
 
Our Commercial Property Lawyers bring extensive experience and resources to the full spectrum of real estate transactions. We have an in-depth understanding of the complexity of all property-based transactions. We work closely with our client base of owners and occupiers, developers and purchasers, and lenders and borrowers in managing all manner of acquisitions, reconstructions, disposals and property refinancing in the current period of economic recovery. We structure client-focused solutions in line with our proven track record.
 
We play a key role in supporting new and existing international clients with their ongoing investment into Ireland, in tandem with our Tax, Corporate and Litigation Departments.
 
Commercial Leases
 
We have extensive experience in lettings of all types of commercial property, acting for both landlords and tenants. We have particular expertise in the area of retail lettings and represent a significant number of the leading Irish and UK retailers.
 
Planning and Environmental Law
 
Far reaching Irish planning and environmental legislation can be a minefield and the firm has considerable experience in guiding its clients through the intricacies of these areas of the law.
 
Property Development
 
We provide a full service for landowners, developers and funding institutions in relation to property development; from site assembly, the obtaining of planning permission to the finalisation of funding agreements, joint venture development agreements, income sharing leases and other profit sharing mechanisms.
 
Property Investment
 
We have extensive experience of tax-based property investments. We are experienced in advising on the most appropriate structures for investment; ranging from corporate vehicles to co-ownerships, partnerships, limited partnerships and investment limited partnerships.
 
Property Lending
 
In conjunction with our Banking and Financial Services Department, we have been to the forefront in devising innovative solutions to overcome the complex problems which can arise in lending situations. In concert with our Corporate Recovery and Insolvency Group, we also offer a full service to mortgagees, receivers, liquidators and examiners in dealing with property in default.
 
Property Litigation
 
We have one of the largest property litigation practices amongst Irish law firms. We have a broad range of experience in advising clients on property related disputes and have advised landlords, tenants, developers, local authorities and other public bodies. We have considerable experience in acting in all kinds of dispute resolution, including arbitrations, mediations and judicial review proceedings, and we regularly advise on property disputes before the Commercial Court.
 
Taxation
 
Taxation has considerable bearing on Irish real estate issues not only in the field of property related taxes such as stamp duties, value added tax and capital gains tax, but also tax incentives such as capital allowances and rent deductions. In tandem with our Taxation Department, we offer an unparalleled service aimed at achieving the optimum result from a tax perspective.
