Construction and property development law

Construction projects are prone to conflict due to the large number of parties involved in the construction process and a wide range of risks.

How we help you

We provide you with legally sound advice and representation in every phase of your construction project. Due to many years of experience, we not only have expertise in construction and architectural law, but also technical understanding as well as the ability to cooperate in an interdisciplinary manner with architects, engineers, contractors, craftsmen and authorities, which is indispensable in construction and architectural law in order to successfully assert your interests.

We try to avoid time-consuming and costly litigation. If an amicable solution is not possible or desired, we pay special attention to the efficient enforcement of our clients' claims in court.
