Real Estate Law

We counsel clients during the conducting of real estate projects from the initial idea to planning to realization and marketing—and beyond. Our team counsels and supports you during the acquisition of real estate, in the planning and in the conducting of procedures pursuant to public procurement law, and in the planning and construction of buildings.

We focus on the goal- and solution-oriented support of construction projects, both during the preparation and negotiation of contracts and the review and negotiation of addenda. We develop solutions while taking into account the legal, technical, and economic interdependencies, because the legally correct solution is not always economically feasible or an economic solution is not always sensible from the legal perspective.
