Onze expertise binnen Construction & Development

Bij de begeleiding van grote bouwprojecten is meer dan alleen kennis van het klassieke bouwrecht vereist. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan publiek-private samenwerkingsverbanden, waarbij bouwers, investeerders en financiers behoefte hebben aan een geïntegreerde juridische benadering van onder andere het bouwcontractenrecht, het ondernemingsrecht en projectfinanciering. De expertise van onze Construction & Development specialisten reikt daarom verder. Zij werken daarnaast nauw samen met onze experts op het gebied van onder meer M&A, ruimtelijke ordening, energie en finance. Dit alles stelt ons Construction & Development Team in staat om bij ieder project dienstverlening op maat te bieden.

Vertegenwoordiging in bouw- en aanbestedingsgeschillen vergt behalve specialistische kennis een goede feeling met de sector. Daarover beschikken onze specialisten in ruime mate. Steeds vaker wordt geprocedeerd over internationale contractvormen, met vaak een alternatieve vorm van geschillenbeslechting, zoals mediation, bindend advies of arbitrage. Door de samenwerking tussen het Construction & Development Team en onze internationale litigation- en arbitragepraktijk beschikt Houthoff over vergaande expertise op dit vlak.
