NEW YORK CITY—South Korean capital remains one of the most sought after sources of funding for US commercial real estate. Although cross-border real estate investments have been coming from Korea for the last 25 years, attorneys at Mayer Brown say there has been “off the charts activity” in the last two or three years. The law firm handled 24 Korean real estate financing deals in 2017, and has 11 deals already underway this year.
