Fields of expertise
Urban development planning notably includes formal and content-related requirements in the process of drawing up the plans, the procedure, the possibilities for participation and legal protection, as well as the implementation and safeguarding of the planning. Sectoral planning law covers the planning of spatially-relevant projects such as roads and motorways.
Planning law particularly involves conflicts concerning pollution control laws in urban development planning (such as noise associated with sports, leisure activities, industry and traffic), environmental considerations (especially nature conservation issues) in specialist planning (such as in planning permission for roads or airports), as well as the relationship between construction planning and trade laws (such as the licensing law legitimacy of entertainment facilities).
We advise private individuals, businesses and communities on the entire planning process.
Construction is becoming increasing complicated. Stricter regulations, increasing usage requirements and a multitude of technical possibilities make construction projects more extensive and unmanageable. It is therefore all the more important to obtain timely competent legal counsel.

Construction law and all other legal fields that are important in the realisation of construction projects have for decades counted among the core advisory services of our firm. Issues related to construction law often hover on the boundary between private and public law, which is why you will find specialists in both legal fields with us.

Environmental law covers several cross-sectional areas of public law. This particularly includes pollution control law, water law, recycling and waste law, nature conservation law and soil protection law.
Pollution control law primarily concerns protection against air and noise pollution in installations subject to licensing and other structures, especially traffic routes. In water law, the key issues are measures for water protection and the arrangement of water law-related uses. Recycling and waste law is defined by complex prevention, recovery and disposal. Soil protection law, which serves to safeguard and restore soil functions, intersects with many other areas of law such as water law (contamination of bodies of water), waste law (sites of toxic waste deposits), and nature conservation law (landscape conservation, agricultural land use).
We offer advice to private individuals, businesses and communities both on pre-planned uses and in the case of judicial enforcement.
The rapid increase in Internet commerce has heightened the importance of copyright law for private individuals. We offer you advice on the traditional areas of copyright law, such as film, music and publishing.
