When drawing up contracts and providing legal support during ongoing construction projects, we pay special heed to the economic and financial aspects of the project and focus on achieving out‑of‑court solutions for our clients to avoid costly disputes. If court action cannot be prevented, our experienced litigators continue to be tireless advocates for our clients, relentlessly enforcing or defending their interests in court.
