HYS & Co. Advocaten is a medium-sized Utrecht office highly specialized in construction and real estate and related areas of law (such as corporate and energy law). This concerns everything that has to be developed, built, operated and transferred. From residential and commercial real estate, educational and healthcare institutions, to technical installations and area development. Sometimes it concerns a single aspect, such as a tender, planning, a construction or rental contract, but it can also cover a life phase or even the entire life cycle of a project, from initiation and financing to delivery and operation afterwards. Our staff have all gained many years of expertise, which is widely made available in the execution of each assignment. Our office has both an advisory and litigation practice. We consider litigation as a last resort. Our work is often aimed at preventing this by providing solution-oriented advice or drawing up clear contracts.Show more +
