Architectural Law

Experience and expertise – the solid foundation for nationwide mandates.


Our specialists for building and architectural law, administrative law, and rent and flat ownership law, together with our experienced lawyer/notaries have built their extensive legal expertise over decades in numerous mandates by architects, engineers, construction firms, builders, developers, and the public sector.

Our clients in all areas of architectural and engineering law, including public private partnership (PPP) now benefit from this experience. From contract structuring and negotiations to preparation of public law requirements for construction projects, we support building projects throughout the entire planning and construction process all the way to settling guarantee claims.

The structure of our law firm allows us to assemble powerful teams to support even extensive building projects at short notice. Many of our clients have relied on this combination of close relationships and the capability to support national and international projects for many years.

Particularly in the field of architectural law, our clients benefit from the geographic proximity of our offices in Berlin, Brunswick, Bremen, Frankfurt am Main, Hannover, Magdeburg and Barcelona. In complex and generally protracted real estate projects, one of our partners personally ensures the support and continued management of the mandate.
