We successfully advise general contractors and subcontractors who carry out complex investment projects concerning construction, modernisation and revitalisation of railway lines (both “design-build” and “build” formula) for public contracting authorities. Clients value our experience and professional and technical expertise related to realisation of investment projects in railway infrastructure as well as organisation of railway traffic.
We successfully advise on matters related among other things to claims due to defective or incomplete design documentation, late construction site handover, refusal to allow railway lines to be closed, unpredictable physical conditions, payment and increase of the fee, settlement of completed additional and substitute works, construction general costs, effectiveness of withdrawal from a contract, charged contractual penalties, warranty works, investor’s abuse of his rights under a bank or insurance guarantee (drawing on the security without justification), and other claims arising in the course of realisation of construction investment projects.
