CHSH has had a new department since 1 January 2017. By creating a "Real Estate & Construction" department, the firm has strengthened its competence in real estate and construction law and continues to push its expansion in this area. The department's primary focus is on national and international construction projects and real estate transactions, project development, rental and lease agreements, real estate disputes, claims management and construction litigation.
The new department is headed by Dr. Peter Vcelouch (partner). The team also includes partners Dr. Manfred Ton and Mag. Mark Krenn, senior associates Mag. Matthias Nödl and Mag. Christoph Reiter, and associate Mag. Elisabeth Stocker. The CEE Real Estate Practice Group, which specialises in advising clients on real estate transactions in Central and Eastern Europe, is part of the new department and will continue to be headed by Mark Krenn.
All members of the department have significant experience, gained over many years. Furthermore, Dr. Peter Vcelouch has been a lecturer at the Architecture and Engineering Academy (Arch + Ing Akademie) for a number of years.
"We're extremely pleased to announce the establishment of our Real Estate & Construction department. This represents a significant step towards strengthening our real estate and construction practice and underscores the growth in this area of law", Dr. Peter Vcelouch, Head of "Real Estate & Construction".
