Importance of REITs

With increased urbanisation and a booming real estate industry, the REITs industry has grown in importance in Malaysia. REIT transactions have become ever more complex, and demand exacting legal analysis and close attention to detail.

Wide capability across REITs

Our Real Estate Investment Trusts Practice is widely recognised as one of the most experienced in Malaysia, and is headed by Partners who were personally involved as lead counsel for one of the earliest, and three of the largest, REIT IPOs in Malaysia.

We cover every aspect of the REITs space, from the acquisition and financing of properties, to listing. We also advise on mergers and acquisitions, and funding activities undertaken by Malaysian REITs and property funds.

Network and reputation 

We are able to draw on the insights and experience of a pioneering team of REITs practitioners, both within the Firm and the Allen & Gledhill network known as A&G Asia, who are recognised for their experience in this area.

We work with some of the most influential and diverse players in the REITs environment, and are regularly consulted by regulators, industry bodies and leading players on forthcoming changes or enhancements to the relevant legislative or regulatory regime.
