About

Provided by Fellner Wratzfeld & Partners

For years we have maintained a special focus on infrastructure projects. We have successfully handled both motorway and railway projects, and provided valuable support for large-scale construction projects such as shopping centres, offices and residential buildings and hydro projects. Expertise and experience in real estate and construction law as well as in financing and public procurement law have made us Austria's market leader in infrastructure law. We also advise Austria's authorities on public procurement procedures as well as bidders participating in contract award procedures. Core components of our advice in this area are the recognition of defects in tender documents and reacting to new developments in on-going procedures as soon as possible, as this allows for appropriate and effective measures to be taken and thus ensures the best possible outcome.
