International Project and Supply Contracts

The secret to the successful execution of every project lies in its careful structuring and planning. Of course, at the outset, commercial conditions and technical solutions take the spotlight – but their legal implementation is instrumental in ensuring their long-term success, as long as it defers to the needs of business reality. We acknowledge that our clients' projects are about realising visions and attaining goals; legalistic glass bead games have to take a back-seat. Carefully drafted and harmonised contracts, however, can be that decisive layer of armour protecting a project from irreparable harm.


Our experience in the field of dispute resolution has shown us all too well where projects can take a wrong turn. The perceptions and insights obtained through years of handling multi-jurisdictional disputes have provided us with the sharp vision required to identify issues that warrant particular attention at the time of drafting and concluding a contract. Most importantly, however, we listen to what our clients have to say – and assist them in realising their goals.


Each individual client and each individual project require different levels of involvement. The solutions we offer are bespoke, catering to the client’s individual needs. Hence, our contracts team takes care of the entire legal framework of a given infrastructure project, if so requested, but is also content to provide focused and specific legal support on individual issues, as needed.


Hence, our firm’s lawyers have been involved in the drafting and negotiations of numerous project and supply contracts. We have successfully stood at our clients’ sides throughout the planning and execution of small and large-scale projects. With our assistance, our clients are able to avoid legal pitfalls both mundane and extraordinary, thereby minimising complications and risk exposure.
