We are legal advisors of the public authorities, infrastructure managers and investors and assist them in the implementation of major national and international road, rail and air traffic infrastructure projects. On behalf of governmental ministries we act as legal experts in pioneering research projects. In such projects we examine for instance the feasibility of sustainable traffic management concepts as well as the suitability of private law and public law based organisational structures and incentive schemes for a cost effective infrastructure provision. As a regulatory law firm we are fully proficient with requirements for levying charges and fees for the use of central infrastructure facilities.
