Construction Law

The construction and real estate sector is an anchor of stability and a driver of growth for the German economy. At the same time, it fulfills an essential function for society as a whole: it creates a liveable living and working environment. Construction and real estate law is characterized by a particularly high number of legal standards, whereby the boundary between legal and technical regulations is fluid. In addition, digital and sustainable solutions are also playing an increasingly important role here and are politically prescribed. In this complex environment, we provide you with comprehensive, targeted and specialized advice so that you are prepared for the legal challenges that arise in construction projects.

Our specialties

Building contract law

In view of the technical and legal complexity of construction projects, competent legal advice is important from the outset – for clients, investors, contractors and suppliers.

We advise all parties involved in construction – with excellent legal knowledge and technical understanding. We support and draft contracts (VOB contracts, IPA or GMP/open-book), follow up on supplements and, if necessary, enforce warranty claims.

Public building law

Building rights, i.e. the right to construct a certain property on a certain plot of land, are of great importance for all developers. Securing building rights is the starting point for every project and is a prerequisite for acquiring land or commissioning a construction company. We support you, together with the architects commissioned by you, in securing building rights, whether by obtaining planning permission, negotiating with residents, local authorities or building authorities.

Public procurement law

As specialist lawyers for public procurement law, we provide our clients with comprehensive support in all legal matters relating to tenders above and below the EU thresholds. We support the public sector and other clients in the design and implementation of procurement procedures. As lawyers for public procurement law, we also support companies that apply for public contracts as bidders and, if necessary, ensure effective legal protection – not only in review proceedings.

Special technical construction

Special technical construction
The implementation of major construction projects (clinics, sports facilities, energy generation plants, transport routes, etc.) is extremely complex, both legally and practically. It is important to maintain an overview and ensure that all (legal) aspects are adequately taken into account and that all sub-projects are optimally coordinated.
Whether building construction, civil engineering or plant construction, construction projects are characterized by a large number of trades and many interfaces. This harbors risks. Because many participants also means a lot of potential for conflict. This is exactly where our advice comes in: We support you in reducing the risks of the construction project in the best possible way.
We do not shy away from complex large-scale projects. On the contrary: they are our specialty. We take on the associated challenges in order to create the greatest possible legal certainty for you in the project.

Property developer

Property development law has developed considerably in recent years, particularly in the area of conflict with consumer protection.

We support investors and purchasers alike and always keep an eye on changes in the legal framework for you.

Subsidy law

Every year, many billions of euros in subsidies from EU, federal and state funds flow into publicly funded measures such as the expansion of transport or communication routes, construction and cultural projects or measures to improve sustainability. Many private and public clients are often only able to realize such projects with the help of public funding. However, research projects are also often financed by subsidies. When awarding subsidy-financed contracts, the recipient must regularly comply with the provisions of public procurement law, even if it is not a public contracting authority. Compliance with public procurement law is required in the ancillary provisions attached to the funding decision. Funding recipients must pay particular attention to this level of funding in order to avoid being exposed to reclaims years after completion.
