Lawyers

The “Real-Estate Law” department advises on any real estate project, on the occasion of any demolition or construction work, the renovation of existing buildings, and issues relating to, for example accommodation, offices, hotels, warehouses.

It advises on property development law, construction law, commercial leases and environmental law relating to real estate work.

The department is particularly skilled in risk analysis and contractual negotiations, being concerned to avoid disputes between the various players concerned.

  • setting up a real-estate project at the time of purchasing immoveable assets, identifying the risks related to the project,
  • drafting and negotiating contracts relating to real-estate projects or their exploitation (property development contracts, “on-plan” sales, project management agreements, works contracts, undertakings to sell, commercial leases, etc.),
  • the future implications of the regulations resulting from Grenelle 2,
  • preventive management of any disagreements during the construction operations, out of court settlement of disputes,
  • construction operations, from preventive summary proceedings to acceptance,
  • difficulties between owners, companies, sub-contractors, neighbours : e.g. voluntary liquidation, discontinuance of construction work, statements of complaint, supplementary work, abnormal private nuisance, easements, etc.,
  • disputes after acceptance or delivery,
  • the drafting and negotiation of commercial leases and in the management of the lease,
  • any issues relating to the running of the hotel (excluding employment law).

The “Real-Estate Law” department is headed by two partners : Benoît BOUSSIER, Nathalie PEYRON and Adrien WILLIOT.
