    Real property & construction

    Legal and regulatory requirements are increasing, available construction land is shrinking, and legal questions are becoming more complex. Our experts in property law are familiar with the challenges in this sector, and their approach to property is not merely legal – they also focus on the commercial, financial and technical aspects. We advise project developers, investors, construction and planning businesses, private individuals, property management firms, architects and public sector clients on all legal matters surrounding the topic of real property; from due diligence to land transactions and construction agreements, on to architectural services and (commercial) landlord-tenant law.

    Private clients/Immigration

    Economic globalisation, integration of markets, individual mobility. Private individuals, foundations and family businesses operate in a challenging and frequently complex environment, which we, as lawyers, are extremely familiar with, because we operate in it every day. We offer our clients comprehensive support and advice, particularly in matters of immigration and employment law, and thus cover the entire spectrum of immigration and citizenship law. In connection with our family office service, we also advise clients on all matters relating to their personal and private sphere.

    Industry 4.0 & digital commerce

    Digitalisation and interconnections of machines, systems and logistics (“M2M”), intelligent processing of large-scale volumes of data (“Big Data”) or IoTs are nowadays an important part of our society and their importance continues to grow. They will have substantial impacts on aspects of liability law, telecommunications and IT law as well as data protection law in commercial agreements. We support you on classic IT law matters regarding software licence models, cloud solutions and distribution issues, e-commerce and m-commerce and provide individual tailoring of your contracts for digital business transactions.

    Data protection

    The processing of personal data is being placed on a new legal footing as a result of the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect in May 2018. The GDPR confronts businesses with the challenging task of fundamentally reviewing and modifying their own data protection management. In light of the steep increase in potential fines envisaged under the GDPR, it is already becoming indispensable to begin dealing with these issues now. Acting in essence as your “external data protection office”, we will be pleased to advise you as you navigate your way towards modern data protection in conformity with all of the relevant legal requirements. We will get to know your business, advise your management team and staff on data protection and help and counsel you in developing your information processing procedures.

    (White collar) criminal law & compliance

    In addition to acting as classic defence counsel in criminal matters, we also take on mandates to serve as defence counsel to business entities, including on internal investigations, and we advise and counsel clients in matters of preventative compliance. When compliance measures are systematically structured and updated on a permanent basis, in combination with preventative action in terms of teaching, informing and training staff, this will ensure that you retain proper control of your internal corporate processes so as to minimise legal risks.

    Litigation & mediation

    The courthouse is often an unavoidable destination, but it is not the best choice for every client for every dispute. Frequently, a letter before action will suffice, or it may be possible to achieve the desired objectives by means of alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation and conciliation. We will help you to find the most suitable strategy for resolving conflicts in order to enforce your legal claims and optimally defend your legal position and your rights. We advise you in all aspects of litigation management, from communications with insurance providers through to litigation financing and litigation PR.
