We handle a myriad of public real estate transactions such as those between public and private stakeholders including office buildings hosting public services, housing, day-care centres, schools, cultural centres, police stations and more. Of particular note is our focus on PPP (DBFM(O)) contracts, public real estate contracts, public IT contracts, concessions (utilities, including waste and transport), public service concessions and utilities.

We handle these matters for a broad range of clients composed of federal and regional state authorities, local authorities, public undertakings, and companies in the public utilities sectors. Our clients also include many private companies with a need for assistance in the public sector.

Our firm’s multidisciplinary approach ensures all the necessary fields of expertise are in house such as constitutional law, public law, procedural administrative law, procurement law, public financing, real estate and construction (including PPP/PFI aspects), tax and competition.

Furthermore, we support both public authorities and private companies in the context of disputes brought before the courts, the Council of State (Conseil d’État/Raad van State) or the Constitutional court.
