CONSTRUCTION AND REAL ESTATE
Our team is extremely well versed in the intricacies of real estate law, whether in the project development, project financing or property management. We can advise our clients on the various legal options, such as sales of buildings for future completion (vente en état futur d'achèvement), full ownership or long term leases (emphytéose and droit de superficie) and help them to find the most suitable setup.
We also advise on the many administrative permits that are required for building projects and have ample experience of large scale commercial projects. Thanks to our strong reputation, we represent some of the big names in the real estate industry. Our public sector team is especially experienced in public development contracts, public-private partnerships (PPP) and concession contracts.
Should the project run into problems, our experienced litigators will help our clients to resolve and disputes that may arise.
