Construction law blog of CERHA HEMPEL
This is the blog of the Construction Team dealing with construction matters and disputes in Cerha Hempel Dezső and Partners. Our colleagues regularly publish on civil and construction law issues of great interest, which are recurring significant problems for businesses in the construction industry. The materials published here do not constitute legal advices, we can only give them in individual cases. However, our easily understandable analyses can still help you manage risks effectively: avoid avoidable litigation, and prepare for unavoidable lawsuits.
