Real estate law / construction law

For everyone who wants to move the unmovable

The real estate market in Berlin keeps growing. With the ever-increasing competition for interesting properties – especially in urban areas like Berlin – it’s good to have a law firm with years of measurable success on your side. For us, that success is largely due to our thorough knowledge of real estate law, land law, construction law, and architectural law combined with extensive experience drafting contracts and with all legal aspects of the real estate and construction industry. Better still, when the lawyers are passionate about real estate themselves.

While you concentrate on your business, the firm’s specialized lawyers will do things like draw up purchase agreements and construction contracts, or review financing issues or awarded construction contracts.
