Comment: This firm recommended in construction advises many of its long-term clients on the whole real estate life cycle, with a team that combines construction, real estate and other specialist areas. FPS is traditionally strong in Frankfurt, where it is involved in almost all major projects in the city, e.g. the revitalization of an office complex incl. architects’ law and rent contracts and the construction of a prominent retail property. But it also recently expanded its work in Hamburg and Munich, where it gained new clients. The firm showed its targeted approach to meeting client demands by developing software for drafting construction contracts. This puts it way ahead of most other construction practices. The addition of four associates and a partner promotion are evidence of how well the practice is developing.
Strengths: Project development; experienced litigation practice.
