Building and Architectural Law

Building and architectural law are areas of law that are often very difficult to handle without specialised legal knowledge. Builders, architects, construction companies, developers and others involved in the construction must comply with many regulations of private and public building law. Legal disputes over construction defects or architect’s fees can often go on for years. We are happy to assist you with our expertise to achieve an optimal result for you.

The best foundation for such an outcome is most of the times a contract that greatly takes into consideration the needs and goals of our clients. MKM +PARTNER has therefore specialised in the drafting of contracts and contract review relating to property and construction in general. We offer special expertise and experience-based knowledge in the following areas:
