Even when a government acts, damage may occur. As a result, this creates discussions of claims, with liability potentially being placed on public authorities. We assist in cases both for and against the government.
Governmental liability is a legal area between administrative and civil law and our specialists regularly advise on a broad spectrum of related matters. For example, claims regarding planning or permitting issues, civil service, works on the public domain, unconstitutional laws, illegal procurement decisions or illegal decisions with respect to public servants.
We act on behalf of government/public authorities, public and private companies and private individuals that suffer losses due to the actions of an administrative body and want to recover these losses from the government.
Our expertise also encompasses complex litigation regarding unlawful governmental intervention that causes damages, or lawful governmental intervention that causes extraordinary damages. We handle such matters before civil courts, administrative courts and the Council of State.
