Plant engineering law

A large number of parties, high costs, processes that are often protracted – plant construction projects are highly complex. In this area it really pays to maintain a clear overview and to be pro-active.

The experts in our Practice Group advise principals and contractors in national and international plant construction, in all project stages – from the conception of contracts for industrial plants and technical systems (e.g. power plants, on and offshore wind parks, process industries, acquisition of plants and machinery) through the procurement process to legally sound procedures and commissioning.

In addition to advising on individual legal issues, we offer structured, project-related advice on claim, anti-claim and risk management. Where necessary, we also represent our clients in proceedings before courts and arbitral tribunals.

Our lawyers are perfectly familiar with technical and construction-related processes and the requirements of plant engineering. In international projects (e.g. under FIDIC), we have recourse to a whole network of international law firms of which we are part.
