Construction

Construction law advice lies at the heart of our projects practice. We have a proven track record in advising developers, project companies, public sector entities, employers, general contractors and subcontractors, suppliers, as well as financiers, insurers and credit agencies on all types of civil engineering works, including infrastructure and utilities projects. They turn to us for our ability not only to diagnose and remedy, but also to properly anticipate problems before they arise. We are trained and highly experienced in dealing with industry standard documentation such as FIDIC agreements and other European national standards. In addition, clients value our tax expertise in connection with complex construction projects, as well as our ability to structure joint ventures and deal with permanent establishment issues.

Our clients rely on us to defend their interests in all types of difficult and disputed matters in regular courts, DRBs, and also before the international courts of arbitration.
