Major construction and infrastructure projects present those involved with an array of challenges. The CMS lawyers for public construction, planning law and project development can assist you in complying with the construction, planning and environmental law regulations that are key to successful implementation of projects in the public sector.

Over the years, our lawyers for public construction and planning law have advised on construction of numerous industrial plants, power stations, wind farms, gas storage facilities and on waterway works, as well as roads, airports, harbours, pipelines and overhead power lines. Our expertise covers every stage of a project: from construction planning procedures, approvals and planning assessment proceedings, including state-imposed conditions and public participation, to project and development plans, urban planning agreements and environmental impact assessments.

Our lawyers for public construction and planning law not only advise on planning, structuring and implementing your project, they also highlight potential risks at an early stage, find appropriate solutions and support you when communicating with the authorities and third parties. If required, we can also defend your licence or planning permission against third party lawsuits.
