Expertise

Construction

Our position in contentious and non-contentious construction matters is unrivalled in the Netherlands. We help our clients with shaping contract strategies for our clients’ most important large scale construction projects, have wide experience with project financing including PPP-financing, provide in-depth procurement and public law advise, and have an unrivalled track record in litigating and arbitrating complex construction disputes.

Our construction group focusses on both large-scale projects with a high grade of complexity, and on construction projects with an international character. One of our key success factors is our focus on technical and commercial issues, making it possible for our lawyers to truly team-up with clients’ technical and commercial experts.

 

Over the years, we have been involved in many landmark projects in a wide variety of sectors and jurisdictions. These projects include the construction of breakwaters and harbour facilities, terminals, including offshore jetties for the oil and gas industry, oil and gas rigs and pipelines and special purpose vessels.

 

Our specialists are adept in covering all aspects of construction projects, both contentious and non-contentious, including advising on tender and contracting strategies; applying international standards, such as FIDIC, Logic and Ichem in both common law and civil law jurisdictions; project financing; zoning and permits; and dispute resolution, including DAB, mediation and arbitration under the leading arbitration rules.

De Brauw’s ‘swift’ and ‘accurate’ team serves a solid client base of major players in the Dutch construction market, known for its exceptionally strong and contentious capabilities.
