Construction and Infrastructure Redevelopment

H&R’s Construction and Infrastructure Practice involves virtually all phases of the construction process. H&R attorneys advise their clients on various aspects of a project, from the negotiation of contracts and the preparation of bids, to the resolution of construction disputes. We assist in project administration, job close-outs and settlement, and privatization matters, and in most forms of construction litigation, appellate work or arbitration throughout Europe, the U.S. and South-East Asia. We provide a full range of services with respect to government contracts, including bid protests.

Our attorneys provide counsel on projects as diverse as the construction of Romania’s largest office building to date, its largest private hospital, the largest ceramic sanitaryware factory in Europe, greenfield factories in Thailand and Bulgaria, the first large American factory in Vietnam, and a number of factories in China. HRMR’s attorneys’ experience in construction project finance includes projects in the United States, Western Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Our construction attorneys deal with claims for construction defects, extra work, delay and disruption, acceleration, lost labor and equipment productivity. We understand how to calculate extended project costs so that we can assist our clients in recovering expenditures lost on a delayed project. Our attorneys address design defects, cardinal changes, commercial impracticability, differing site conditions, access problems, over-zealous inspectors, structural failures, rejection of nonconforming work, terminations, payment and performance bonds, performance guarantees, liquidated damages, and warranties.

Attorneys offer a complete palate of services to address other diverse challenges that confront the construction industry, including project taxation and finance, environmental regulations, bankruptcy, intellectual property rights, real estate transactions, and governmental agency relations.

Our Practice includes, by necessity, infrastructure redevelopment regarding the development, privatization, project financing and acquisition of a variety of infrastructure facilities. Combining the transactional experience and the regional knowledge of our Myanmar attorneys with H&R’s international resources, we offer additional services in such practice groups as taxation, international trade and law, corporate and securities and privatizations.

Our clients have benefited from the abilities of our attorneys to successfully manage and negotiate complex transactions in such industries as:

  • Oil & gas;
  • Petrochemicals;
  • Telecommunications, including analog, GSM and satellite;
  • Radio and cable television;
  • Manufacturing;
  • Electricity;
  • Financial services;

Our attorneys assist the client in every phase of the transaction, including the preparation and negotiation of contracts for power purchases, developing commercial contracts and other arrangements, site acquisitions, construction, operation and maintenance, raw materials, transportation, power transmission, structuring joint-ventures or other appropriate vehicles, securing requisite approvals and handling any disputes or dealings that may arise from specialized legal areas.

Some of the projects in which H&R attorneys participated:

  • Redevelopment of Baneasa Airport in Romania.
  • Development of over a dozen hotel and resort projects in Eastern Europe.
  • Land acquisition/property leases, including agricultural land. Preparation of mortgage and funding documentation, environmental compliance, and resolving disputed land ownership claims and conflicting titles in Europe.
  • Various office and hotel projects for large real estate developers, including the largest such developers from Israel and Greece.

Often, multinational projects require the insights and specific expertise of geographically diverse law firms. Accordingly, HRMR attorneys often find themselves working hand-in-hand with other international law firms from the United States and Europe. H&R’s many years of experience has allowed us to foster collegial and substantive relationships that enable us to service the needs, whether large or small, of our clients.
