Infrastructure and construction

Infrastructure and construction

An important element of our daily work is the service provided to entities operating in the broadly understood infrastructure sector. We provide comprehensive legal advice to Polish and foreign entrepreneurs implementing projects related to the construction or modernization of linear and nodal infrastructure.

Practical knowledge of the market and many years of experience in this particular area mean that consulting services provided by HANTON lawyers ensure the development of our Clients' business while ensuring legal security.

The Law Firm provides services to numerous entrepreneurs operating in the infrastructure sector such as ordering parties, general contractors, subcontractors, investors and design offices. HANTON lawyers advise at every stage of the investment - from agreement preparation, through service during the project implementation, to the completion of all works and possible disputes and claims arising from the existed agreement.

Our lawyers advise on both civil and public-law aspects related to running a business in the infrastructure sector. While counseling our Clients, we support them in the area of:

  • public procurement;
  • construction agreements and FIDIC;
  • investment disputes;
  • environmental protection;
  • rules for the use of products used in the implementation of infrastructure investments;
  • litigation as well as arbitration and mediation.

We provide legal assistance in obtaining administrative permits, including decisions on environmental conditions, decisions on development conditions, decisions allowing tree logging, construction permits, permits for railway, road and aviation investments, as well as occupancy permits. We also help in changing them, as well as transferring them to another entity.

We have unique competence in servicing Clients who modernize railway lines in the area of ​​railway system interoperability. We support in the course of certification of railway structural subsystems for compliance with the Technical Specifications for Interoperability and other standardization documents. We represent our Clients in relations with PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe, notified authorities and the President of the Office of Rail Transport [PL: Prezes Urzędu Transportu Kolejowego].

One of the most valuable experiences for HANTON is the legal service provided to operators of intermodal terminals and nodal infrastructure necessary for the development of intermodal freight transport. We believe that the dynamic development of this branch of transport will positively affect not only the development of our country but will also help protect our environment to a greater extent.
