Construction Law

Yspeert’s construction law experts offer legal assistance, advice and litigation to companies, installers, architects, contractors and all other private and public parties involved in the construction process. We can advise you on the development and realisation of infrastructure projects, non-residential construction, (re) developments and (large-scale) housing construction.

Because of their unique understanding of the full life cycle of a construction project, our experts are able to offer a single point of contact for project development, contract administration and dispute resolution advice. We prepare and negotiate commercially appropriate, special conditions for all major forms of construction contracts, such as integrated construction contracts (including UAW, UAV-GC and D&B), financial support arrangements, concession contracts, joint venture agreements, technology supply and license agreements, and operation and maintenance contracts. We can also assist you with the permit process for large-scale projects.

You can count on a large multidisciplinary team that is able to skilfully address the wide array of legal challenges you may face at any stage of the construction process. As a client, you will get the highest quality from our team that is dedicated to solving your dispute, whether this be in court or out of court.

Aanspreekpunt

mr. W.J. (Wouter) Leerink

I work in a team of very persistent people. I think that teamwork is the most amazing thing. I was captain of my field hockey team for many years. The group process is my priority; working together towards a goal. In every case you must first ensure that the content is correct. Nonetheless, I want to achieve what is best for my client. But I don't just want to solve problems. By building a good relationship with a client, you can also prevent future issues.
