We provide advice on all areas of public commercial law and public procurement law. Our counseling services in public law extend to all areas in which economic activity is regulated by the state. We develop tailor-made solutions in order to bring our clients' economic or corporate objectives into line with the diverse framework conditions of public law. We frequently advise the public sector on privatisation issues as well as in the special areas of state liability, constitutional law, European and international law for transnational projects.
We have expertise not only in the classic fields of law of national and European environmental and technology law, public construction and planning law as well as commercial administrative law, but also in the fields of energy law, state aid law, subsidy law, public procurement law and chemicals law. In international matters, we involve our European and non-European partner law firms. Thus: highest legal competence in all jurisdictions in Europe and beyond. Our lawyers active in this field support companies in all legal matters relating to the establishment or expansion of businesses in public construction and planning law, immission control law and environmental law. In particular, they design and support complex commercial, industrial and large-scale retail projects, including the revitalisation and development of brownfield and contaminated sites as well as conversion sites.
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 labour 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 public clients at federal, state and local level before the authorities, the public procurement tribunals, the ordinary and administrative courts, the Federal Constitutional Court and the European institutions.
