Administrative and construction law - Lawyer

Administrative law is a very broad area governed by dozens of laws. Administrative proceedings are also governed by their own rigours. Advice in the field of administrative law can be considered on several levels, among which we can point to construction law, real estate management and representation of clients before public administration bodies, provincial administrative courts and the Supreme Administrative Court, and finally – service of public administration bodies.

The lawyers at our firm deal with all these areas.
