Real Estate, Construction and Housing Sector

In times of low interest rates, real estate of all kinds is a desirable investment objective; construction or trading of real estate, or investment in real estate offers excellent business prospects in the current market environment. Every real estate project comes with its own particular challenges and problems. With brown field sites, environmental issues are often the focus; with commercial real estate, robust lease agreements can be of key economic importance; whilst with construction, building contractor, general contractor and main contractor agreements, provisions relating to service agreements and warranties are central. On the other hand, completely separate issues can arise from the area of public construction and construction planning law.

The services with which we support our clients with real estate projects are as varied as the diverse range of queries that arise in this area.
