Construction and Engineering

Building & Construction, Industrial Engineering

We guide medium-sized undertakings and major corporations smoothly through the process of preparing, negotiating and designing complex agreements and clarify project-related legal issues as they arise, especially in the area of works contracts and Germany’s Regulations on the Award of Public Construction Contracts (Vergabe- und Vertragsordnung für Bauleistungen – VOB), Regulations on Contract Awards for Public Supplies and Services (Vergabe- und Vertragsordnung für Leistungen – VOL) and the Official Scale of Fees for Services by Architects and Engineers (Honorarordnung für Architekten und Ingenieure – HOAI).

A further mainstay activity of GÖRG’s practitioners in this area involves advising prominent nationally and internationally active architectural and engineering firms that rely on our expertise when it comes to contract design or resolution of remuneration issues and defence against or settlement of warranty and liability claims.

In particular, clients benefit from our in-depth expertise prior to and throughout the execution of power plant and infrastructure projects.

We regularly assist project managers or legal departments in the choice and support of expert witnesses and lay the groundwork for and carry out judicial and out-of-court settlement of disputes. Exceptional familiarity with underlying technical issues combines with specialised legal knowledge to allow our practitioners to provide focused advice that takes into account all project-specific peculiarities.

Finally, our clients in this area include corporate clients and investors who turn to us to implement specific investment projects. In such cases, we make a point of cooperating closely with the specialists in charge of the technical and economic aspects involved in the project.
