How can we help?
We are a market leader in the area of rendering advice on complex public and private construction projects.
Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of the particular legal and financial challenges relating to public private cooperation, as well as the rules applying to sustainable construction.

We are also highly skilled in assisting in construction project tenders and all forms of construction related insurance.
We have extensive experience in construction litigation and arbitration for both public authorities and private businesses, as well as in handling the restructuring of distressed construction companies.

Sector challenges
The construction sector has been affected by the international financial crisis, spurring an increased focus on alternative procurement models, such as public private cooperation.

Moreover, the interest in sustainability and green construction is increasing, and extreme weather is making its mark on the sector, with customers seeking buildings which are more functional and less vulnerable to climate changes.

Finally, stricter health and safety legislation on construction sites increases the pressure on many businesses.
