Private Construction Law
The Private Construction Law practice group assists contractors and other companies in their relations with all of the participants in construction projects (including general contractors, real estate developers, principals, subcontractors, co-contractors, architects, engineers, safety coordinators, real estate brokers and insurers). On the Belgian market, Schoups is a leading player in the field of Private Construction Law. Schoups has a broad client base, including a substantial number of the largest contractors.
The Private Construction Law team provides pragmatic, solution-oriented advice and can rely on its practical experience in order to assist your company with, e.g.:
- drafting and reviewing of contracts in the broadest sense of the word
- conducting negotiations
- handling construction-related disputes in arbitration proceedings, mediations and proceedings before the tribunals and courts
- advice before, during and after the design and execution of construction projects
The lawyers of our Private Construction Law practice group are not only experienced and ardent litigators, but also skilled advisors and negotiators. Schoups is known for its determined pursuit of the best solution. This requires a flexible approach and an aptitude for creative and customised thinking. Schoups generally tries to reach an out-of-court solution for your specific problem, but our lawyers will not hesitate to take the necessary judicial steps if necessary or preferable. Pragmatism and a client-oriented approach are the keys here.
