Greenberg Traurig has provided Polish advice to GLP on its acquisition of Goodman Group’s Central and Eastern Europe logistics real estate portfolio. Kirkland & Ellis served as global legal counsel to GLP, while Kinstellar provided local legal advice with respect to the Czech, Slovak, and Hungarian aspects of the transaction. Goodman Group was advised by Allen & Overy.

Closing of the transaction remains subject to customary regulatory approvals.

Greenberg Traurig describes GLP as "an investment manager and business builder in logistics, real estate, insurance, and related technologies sectors.” It operates across Brazil, China, Europe, India, Japan, and the U.S. and has approximately USD 89 billion in assets under management in real estate and private equity funds.

The acquired 2.4 million square meter portfolio is concentrated on key logistics routes across the region with access to growing markets for e-commerce and distribution.”
