We provide advice on all areas of public and procurement law. Our counseling services in public law extend to all areas which are subject to government restrictions. We develop tailored solutions in order to harmonize the commercial and corporate policy objectives of our clients. We frequently advise as well public agencies in matters of privatization and in the special areas of government liability and constitutional law, and in European and human rights law in transnational projects.
We have expertise not only in the classic legal areas of national and European environmental and technology law, public construction and planning law, administrative regulation of trade but also in the areas of public law concerning energy, chemicals, aid, subsidies and procurement law. If international issues are concerned we cooperate with our international partner law firms. Thus: best legal competence throughout all jurisdictions in Europe and world-wide. Our attorneys working in this area particularly support companies in all matters under public construction and planning law, pollution control law and environmental law. They draft and accompany complex projects of commercial and industrial companies and large retail businesses including revitalization and development of unused and fallow properties and conversion areas.
Our activities in this area include not only clarifying all issues concerning construction planning and ordinances prior to the construction but also protecting the rights of project developers and investors towards the authorities from the beginning of interactions until all necessary administrative procedures have been completed. The goal is to optimally represent the legal position of project developers and to support them in accomplishing their interests within complex permission and licensing procedures. This also includes the defense or minimization of counterclaims due to pollution protection, contaminated sites or construction burdens. Attorneys from adjacent legal areas as construction and building law, corporate law, tax law and labor law. are also part of our counseling team.
We have been experienced in procurement law for years regarding advice of companies and the public sector (as for example the construction of hospitals, medical laboratories and hotels, theatres, multipurpose halls etc.) and of service providers (in the field of waste management, communication and marketing services, IT area and the sector areas) as well as with regard to the award of licenses and the conception, draft and execution of PPP-projects including choice of investors.
We represent companies and contracting authorities of Federation, Laender and communities before authorities, award chambers, ordinary and administrative courts as well as before the Federal Administrative Court and the European bodies.
