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, subcontractors and suppliers, as well as financiers, insurers and credit agencies on all types of civil engineering works, including infrastructure and utility projects. They rely on us for our ability to not only 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, along with 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, DABs, and before international courts of arbitration.
