Real Estate & Construction Lawyers

As an investor, asset manager, developer, occupier, contractor or construction consortium your real estate deals and construction projects are executed to tight deadlines within complex local legal systems. If, for example, your projects cross international markets, you face issues based on differing real estate, national and international construction law as well as cultural and economic contexts.

With Austria’s most experienced lawyers in construction contract law and over 450 lawyers in 42 countries, we give consistent legal advice across borders, coordinated from your home market. Whether you are in the construction, retail, residential, hotels, infrastructure, care home, office, logistics, renewable energy or student accommodation sectors, we have the specialists to help.

Through decades of experience of doing deals and construction projects across Europe, our multi-jurisdictional teams adhere to the same templates, processes and standards, including project and claim management. This means we can deploy specialist teams to advise you immediately, irrespective of where the real estate assets are or your project takes place.

If you are launching or operating a real estate fund, if you are developing a construction project or setting up a real estate related joint venture, our real estate and construction experts can give you country-specific support. This approach allows us to guide your tax, planning, debt financing, construction and management issues including all kinds of national and international construction disputes and construction claim management in addition to your traditional real estate portfolio and property management work.
