Meet our team of specialists

00 / 00

The real estate and construction industry is seeing growth, but also increasing complexity. Difficult Community law rules, greater demands from international investors for deeper insight into sophisticated transactions, new alternative business models, new types of cooperation and increased focus on planning are merely some of the challenges that enterprises and authorities are facing.

We are leading real estate and construction law specialists. We have extensive experience advising both public-sector employers and private operators in the building and construction industry, and we have in-depth knowledge of all legal aspects of real estate, including investment and divestment, leasing, development and public regulations regarding restrictions on the use of real estate.  

Accordingly, our main areas of expertise span M&A Real Estate, project development, tenders and negotiation of building and construction contracts, lease law and advice relating to real estate. 

In the area of M&A Real Estate we are known for providing innovative and commercially sustainable solutions and for our highly specialised advice. We have in-depth knowledge of financing and related products, e.g. derivatives, which gives us a cutting edge in complicated property development projects where planning of financing is key.

In the area of lease law we advise private and public enterprises and are highly experienced conducting legal proceedings for both lessors and lessees. We are also highly knowledgeable when it comes to sustainable construction and green leases.

In the area of construction law we provide advice on complex public and private building and construction projects as well as projects with both public and private players. We always have a solution-oriented and commercial approach to ensure that the projects are completed in the agreed time and at the agreed price. Our expertise spans project development, tenders in building and construction projects, negotiation of building and construction contracts, and contractor's insurance. We employ some of the leading advisers in dispute resolution and alternative types of dispute resolution (mediation and conciliation) holding many years’ experience representing both public authorities and private enterprises.

We often cooperate with advisers from our other areas of expertise, such as M&A and Corporate Matters, EU & Competition, Dispute Resolution, Tax, Insolvency & Restructuring, Financing, Infrastructure.
