GCC-based family businesses are increasingly looking towards the US commercial real estate market for potential investments. Latham & Watkins recently hosted a seminar in our Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha and Riyadh offices to discuss how GCC investors typically structure US commercial real estate investments and what US tax considerations businesses should keep in mind. A panel of four-US based real estate specialists (Richard Kleinman, Associate Director, LaSalle Investment Management, and Latham partners Michelle Kelban, Nathaniel Marrs and Alan Van Dyke) discussed these issues as well as addressed the current state of the US commercial real estate market during a one hour seminar. The program is available for viewing on-demand. If you have questions on this or other GCC family business programs please contact Salman Al-Sudairi, Office Managing Partner, Riyadh; Ahmad Anani, Senior Counsel, Doha; Christopher Lester, Counsel, Abu Dhabi; or Kai Schneider, Partner, Dubai.
