Real estate law, con­struc­tion law and the leg­al fields asso­ci­ated with these have coun­ted among the core advis­ory ser­vices of our firm for many years. The ‘Con­struc­tion and Real Estate’ prac­tice group arose from our in-depth industry know­ledge and leg­al spe­cial­isa­tion and cov­ers this top­ic area in its entirety. With par­tic­u­lar expert­ise in admin­is­trat­ive law, we suc­cess­fully work toward the recon­cili­ation of interests between private and pub­lic concerns.

As an involved party, you will bene­fit from com­pet­ent leg­al advice, which will help you to identi­fy and avoid poten­tial pro­ject risks at an early stage. Like in the con­struc­tion industry, experts in dif­fer­ent spe­cial­ist fields work togeth­er in our prac­tice group to find the best pos­sible solu­tion for every prob­lem and to make optim­al use of know­ledge interfaces.

Our spe­cial­ist law­yers for con­struc­tion and archi­tec­tur­al law, ten­ancy and res­id­en­tial prop­erty law, and archi­tec­tur­al law devel­op sus­tain­able con­cepts that place con­struc­tion plans and invest­ments on sol­id leg­al foot­ing. All team mem­bers have many years of exper­i­ence with con­struc­tion pro­jects and real estate trans­ac­tions, speak the tech­nic­al lan­guage of the cli­ents and give clear advice. Due to the pos­sib­il­ity of act­ing in a leg­al rep­res­ent­at­ive or not­ari­al capa­city for you, we can help you in the broad field of real estate law in every respect — and con­tinu­ously sup­port your pro­ject from plan­ning per­mis­sion to defect management.

Our con­struc­tion law team rep­res­ent the entire spec­trum of parties involved in the con­struc­tion sec­tor, includ­ing private, com­mer­cial and pub­lic developers; pro­ject developers, prop­erty developers and investors; archi­tects, engin­eers and spe­cial­ist plan­ners, as well as pub­lic author­it­ies and banks.
