LOSCHELDER

Comment: This firm respected in construction law is active beyond its original base in Cologne. In Berlin and Essen, it advised clients on district heat pipelines and plant construction. But it also gained new clients in the Rheinland, which shows that its work outside the area has not affected its regional roots. Expansion of its work for the Cologne/Bonn airport is more evidence of the firm’s prominence on its home turf: Loschelder is advising here on construction procurement in cooperation with the public procurement practice. The firm is in a position to expand its business in this direction steadily, as can be seen in its long-standing advice at the interface with real estate; it is now advising Blackstone on a project.
Development potential: This firm could sharpen its profile by specializing in advice to insurers on defense against claims by architects and engineers, or on construction-related public procurement.
Recommended: Dr. Walter Klein (“outstanding”, client), Dr. Jürgen Lauer (“the best construction lawyer in Cologne”, “thorough and competent”, competitor).
Practice: All-round advice on construction, distinguished litigation practice, occasional international projects. Good connections with the real estate team and public law. (4 partners, 3 associates, plus real estate law)
Clients: ?? Bauwens Development in litigation; Blackstone Investment on a project; Hochtief on litigation and construction, incl. regarding Düsseldorf airport; Gothaer on large-scale damages proceedings; Cologne/Bonn airport on public procurement for construction.
