Construction law/Claims management

Due to many years of experience in managing complex and large-scale structural, civil engineering and infrastructure projects as well as due to the interdisciplinary training of our team members we acquired a deep understanding of construction law and a profound knowledge of the construction industry. We focus on construction law, in particular construction contracts and claims management, ensuring that the construction industry’s requirements comply with the law.
