Allen & Overy has successfully counseled a leading corporate group comprising some well-known international entities in the purchase of the real estate portfolio of VHS.

The consortium includes Breevast, a multi-national company involved in property investment and development in the Netherlands and North America, and FGH, a specialized commercial real estate bank almost exclusively active in the Netherlands.

VHS, which is going public-to-private, held the real estate portfolio, which is valued at nearly Euro 500 million, along with its subsidiary companies. The deal was handled by the Dutch partner of Allen & Overy who claim consolidation of real estate portfolios is an emerging trend. As an international legal practice in 25 major markets worldwide, Allen & Overy is well-equipped to play a major role in such deals.
