Property law and Environmental law

PROPERTY LAW AND ENVIRONMENTAL LAW

A real estate project is hardly ever just that and usually goes hand in hand with major interests, many stakeholders and complex laws and regulations. This also raises many legal issues, such as land acquisition, planning, the anterior agreement (cost recovery), tendering, construction, purchasing, selling and/or leasing the projects and all associated agreements. Our property lawyers oversee this playing field and are happy to help you on your way. By ensuring clear agreements and, in the event of a dispute, providing a solution.

Your challenges

As a citizen, company or government agency, you are subject to a wide range of property law or environmental law issues. A selection of the issues that may arise:

  • How to ensure an efficient and effective approach to land acquisition and allocation
  • How to deal with the legally required recovery of costs
  • How to prevent damage and/or limit your liability, as an entrepreneur and government
  • How to ensure good cooperation with (or between) the project developer, housing association, the property manager, the contractors and other parties involved
  • How to ensure a good contracting agreement and a speedy construction process
  • How to effectively issue a (European) tender

Whatever situation you or your organisation finds itself in, you want to know what your rights and obligations are. For example, if you are wrongly rejected in a tender, your property project comes to a standstill due to damage, or there is a conflict with your partner(s). You can resolve and even prevent a dispute, large or small, with the right advice.

    Property law and environmental law team

    Lawyers who think both from a business perspective and from the law book. That’s our trademark. Not simply listing the rules, but applying the law in the context of your company or organisation, so we can prevent and solve (international) legal issues together.

    Our approach is multidisciplinary: the team is tailored to your issue. Even when this requires specific knowledge of adjacent areas of law, such as insurance law, general administrative law (within government and institutions), employment law or corporate law. That is the advantage of a full-service firm: we are as small as possible and as large as necessary.
