REAL ESTATE


Marsh's Real Estate Practice comprises a global network of advisors who help real estate  clients identify, quantify, and manage their risks using an array of services and solutions.

Real Estate

Real estate owners, managers, and developers operate in a dynamic industry in which everyday "bricks and mortar" risks such as natural hazards co-exist with more complex challenges, including environmental liabilities, partnership and contractual obligations, and stricter lending requirements. The ever-changing nature of the industry is bound to spawn new risks that must be dealt with.
