Real Estate Law and Construction Law

Mission Statement

Strict requirements can be clearly felt in the most different legal areas, particularly in complex real estate projects. Stakeholders are faced with a complex regulatory framework spanning numerous intertwined legal areas and real estate projects with often long-term project schedules, thus making efficient legal advice a key factor for success. Questions related to civil law and corporate law, tax-law issues, as well as key issues of environmental law, construction law, plant and facility approval law, and financing constitute essential quality criteria in this context. To provide first-class advice attorneys need in-depth knowledge of and longstanding adequate practical experience in the legal areas, as well as the ability to assess the requirements of every single project. This makes competent and well-founded advice in real estate and construction law matters all the more important, independent of the type or size of the project or of whether the client assumes the role of seller, purchaser, developer, or investor.

The fwp experts possess longstanding and in-depth counselling experience in complex real estate matters. Our clients benefit from our support, from the planning phase via transactions up to the secure implementation of the solution which is best for them. Apart from advising on specific projects and contracts, fwp’s legal support in real estate includes representing clients in real estate related litigation.
