Building and construction
Hjort has a large Building and Construction practice, and our lawyers are regularly called on by firms engaged in the sector to offer advice and help to resolve disputes of all kinds. Hjort offers its services to contractors, property owners, consultants and suppliers alike.
Because of the complexity of many construction-related assignments, we often find it useful to work closely with the Real Estate and European Competition Law practices. Together, we offer advice and support through all phases of the construction process.
Our attorneys are very familiar with the majority of areas in which construction-sector clients need advice, and have in-depth knowledge of the various standard contracts used in the industry. This combination of sectoral expertise and commercial know-how has been built up over many years of practical experience. We are therefore extremely well placed to help you assess the pros and cons of various contracting models, negotiate terms and draw up the most appropriate contracts. In our experience, good advice at this stage reduces the risk of disputes arising during the actual construction period.
