Construction Law & Regional Planning


Sophisticated real estate projects require legal advisors with more than just first-class industry knowledge. LGP's real estate law and construction law team is ideally positioned for the real estate market in its eternal cycle between hype, crisis and recovery. LGP's internationality and interdisciplinarity prove to be a particular advantage for clients. All colleagues can negotiate in at least two languages and are also experienced in at least two matters, which are important factors when advising clients. It is precisely this combination that is the perfect starting point for securing the complete life cycle of a real estate project, from land acquisition to project development to sale.

Clients benefit from LGP's typical project-based, interdisciplinary approach. Be they private or commercial in nature, the firm's solutions are always tailored to individual client’s needs. The real estate team solves problems with interfaces to other areas of law in close coordination with the respective specialists of the other LGP competence centres, whether this is corporate law, public law or insolvency law. This is the best way for LGP to meet the requirements of the complexities of modern real estate project development.
