Professional advice for the real estate sector

  • Owners and contractors

    A successful contract is based on a solid foundation and a thoroughly drafted contract. This applies to contracts between owners, contractors, architects and subcontractors, but also to professional services agreements and finance guarantees.

    Today's increasing environmental taxes also make it even more important to focus on environmentally sound construction. The operational costs of the finished construction must be as low as possible, and it is therefore important to be innovative throughout. We have in-depth knowledge of all the rules and standards of sustainable construction, and we ensure that our clients' projects are legally sustainable as well. If disputes arise in connection with a construction project, we have wide experience conducting litigation - both before the ordinary courts and before arbitration tribunals. 

    In connection with the different stages of a construction project, we advise on the following:

  • Investors

    Today's investors have ample opportunities within the real estate sector, e.g. in connection with the public sector having introduced more private cooperation and actual partnerships, e.g. PPP's. Our team follows the development closely, e.g. alternative financing models and provision of funding.

    In addition, we advise on the following:

  • Leases

    Rent is often one of the largest items in a company's budget and is fixed for a long period of time. It is therefore essential for both the lessee and the lessor to negotiate a commercially viable lease agreement. It is a fundamental prerequisite to ensure a viable lease agreement that there is focus not only on fixing the proper rent level, but also on the operational costs. Our knowledge of the sector and our wide experience negotiating and drafting lease agreements enable us to ensure permanent solutions together with our clients. If a dispute should arise during a lease, we are also ready to provide assistance.
