Construction and Architects Law

Professional legal support of construction projects is, in addition to the legal advice on real estate transactions and real estate financing, another part of DSC Legal's consulting services, which enables our clients to implement real estate projects in a legally secure way.

We advise our clients in the development, planning, construction, management and realization of construction projects.

Our construction law practice covers all stages of the construction and implementation of building projects and covers all facets of construction and architectural law issues. We assist our clients in drafting agreements, advise them throughout the construction phase, and represent them in all types of negotiations with contractual parties. Thanks to our many years of experience advising on major construction projects, we have a good sense for interdisciplinary cooperation and a strong understanding of technical and commercial considerations.

Our extrajudicial support of construction projects aims at identifying potential conflicts before they arise and developing strategies to avoid such problems or to find an amicable, effective solution.

If a dispute in court is unavoidable, our extensive experience in judicial proceedings pays off. We conduct litigation in a committed, professional and target-oriented manner.

Private Construction Law

Based on our many years of experience in drafting agreements, we assist our clients to set a firm legal basis for the successful execution of construction projects. We strive to not only address the typical issues common to all projects, but always to address the specifics and particularities of the relevant construction project.

As the law is constantly changing, it is paramount that every agreement be in full accordance with the latest jurisprudence. The drafting of general contractor and subcontractor agreements forms a significant part of our practice, as well as assisting in all aspects of negotiation and ongoing legal advice.

Due to the complexity of construction projects, which often include a host of different parties, they are rarely carried out entirely as planned. As deviations from the original plans arise, it is especially important to react to such developments in a timely and effective manner. We help our clients find legally sound solutions and take appropriate action to problems as they arise.

Typical issues that we advise on include work changes, delays in construction, defect liability and proper handling of securities.

Should it be necessary, we support our clients in asserting or defending against warranty claims and other claims for compensation.

Property Development Law

Due to the integration of real estate law and construction law practice, DSC Legal is predestined for the legal support of property development projects. From the legal support for the initial acquisition and financing of the property through to legal assistance during the construction phase up to the partition of the property and sale of apartments and non-residential units, we quickly and efficiently offer tailored solutions.

Architectural and Engineering Law

In the field of architectural and engineering law, we advise both architect and engineering firms, as well as their clients. We assist our clients in structuring agreements, and represent their interest with regards to fee claims and liability questions.

Project Management Law

A properly structured project management agreement will take into consideration whether it is a work or service contract, the scope of services provided, the structuring of payments, and a number of other factors. We are happy to assist our clients on the contractor or principal side. In addition to drafting and negotiating such agreements, we also advise and represent clients in the assertion and defense against claims for payment of project managers and liability claims of the commissioning party.

Public Construction Law

We advise and represent owners, investors, and planners in the field of public construction law and environmental law. In advising on transaction and investment projects, we determine the legal status of a property under public construction law and assist in any permission proceedings. We analyze the construction permits and determine what construction work might be grandfathered-in. Furthermore, we advise and represent clients in concluding neighbor agreements and contracts under public law.
