Plant engineering law

We advise principals and contractors in all project phases in national and international plant engineering law. The breadth of our activity spans from the drafting of contracts for industrial plants and technical works of every size (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.

Alongside advising on individual problems, we also offer structured project-related advice on claim, anti-claim and risk management, if necessary including the representation of clients before law courts and courts of arbitration.

Our lawyers are particularly acquainted with the technical and construction-related processes and requirements of plant engineering law. In international projects (e.g. under FIDIC), we can supplementary revert to a network of foreign law firms.
