Construction and real estate law has been a particular area of focus for our law firm ever since it was founded. Property developers and investors rely on our expertise and decades of experience, as do representatives of the building sector and of every profession.
We manage property projects of all sizes, types, and degrees of complexity. We act as conveyancers and trustees, perform due diligence checks under property law and resolutely advocate for our clients’ interests in contract negotiations.
We are proud to have some of the largest and most prestigious property developers in Austria as our clients. They appreciate our all-inclusive service at every stage of the building project, from the purchasing of the property through the drafting of the necessary easement and land charge agreements and the establishment of condominium property to the handling of the sale of the properties. We can manage even disproportionately large projects in a simple and structured manner, with the aid of myflat®, our in-house platform for property developers.
Building owners and property developers also regularly rely on our expertise. We provide advice on the construction permit process and on obtaining all of the approvals required from public authorities. We draft the suites of contracts relating to the project, such as contracts for building works and services, general contractor’s agreements, architectural agreements, rental contracts and commercial leases or facility management agreements.
Our advisory work also covers the time during construction; for example, by defending clients in a timely manner against claims for additional costs or giving proper notice of them. As a general principle, many conflicts can be avoided through precautionary legal advice. Should it nevertheless prove necessary, we serve as advocates for our clients’ interests in construction litigation before state courts or arbitral tribunals.
