Construction, Property & Housing Corporations sector team

The sector team consists of lawyers who are specialised in different areas of the law and who also have a solid command of all the disciplines involved in building and property.

From the pre-contractual phase to signing and fulfilling contracts, Valegis Advocaten is there to offer its clients advice and assistance during the often lengthy processes of contract negotiations and partnerships.  There are many parties involved in these processes such as municipalities (permits), contractors and subcontractors, foreign and domestic workers, investors and suppliers.

The lawyers on this team have broad practical experience and specialised knowledge of these processes, and provide advice on the contents of the agreements, potential liability issues, applications for permits and employment-law-related opportunities and risks, among other matters. This enables us to switch gears quickly and efficiently, assigning preference to pragmatic solutions provided these are in our client’s best interest.
