We also advise on subsoil use, land and water rights, territorial development, and industrial and commercial construction, in particular, on the drafting of contracts for construction, design, support to PPP projects, and compliance with environmental and other regulatory requirements. Aided by other firms’ practices, we also assist in the tax structuring of deals with real assets and judicial defence of real estate rights.
