Specialist areas

Construction law

Sight advises contractors and principals, consultants and architects during all the phases of the work, from the contracting phase to the
final settlement. Sight has a thorough understanding of the construction process and of the standard conditions applied, such as the UAV,
UAV-TI, UAV-GC, Standaard RAW, STABU and DNR.

Sight also regularly handles disputes in the field of construction law, such as changes, contract variations, building delays, construction
time, (hidden) defects and suspension or termination of the work. Carefully assessing and recording the parties' positions can help to reach
a solution in consultation. If those attempts are successful, legal proceedings are conducted if necessary. Sight is skilled and experienced
in litigating before both the ordinary courts and the various arbitration institutes.

Procurement law

Sight advises companies in tendering procedures, also after the contract has been awarded. If necessary, it litigates on the awarding of the
contract, usually in preliminary relief proceedings. Sight is also consulted by contracting authorities regarding the drafting of tender
documents and the awarding of the contract.

Project development and area development

Sight advises parties that are involved in the development/redevelopment of real estate, such as offices, shopping centres, hotels, distribution
and data centres, and residential real estate. It also advises on area development, in particular with regard to inner-city redevelopment.
We have a great deal of expertise and experience in the field of the redevelopment of real estate with fragmented ownership, such as shopping
centres owned by an owners' association or cooperative owners' association and current and former business parks.

Real estate transactions

As part of its project development practice, Sight advises on the purchase and sale of real estate, in particular on the purchase of undeveloped
or partly developed real estate. Sight has experience with the purchase and sale of offices, hotels, industrial real estate, distribution centres,
construction sites, leisure objects and shopping centres.

Lease

Sight advises (and, if necessary, litigates) on a wide range of landlord and tenant law issues, in particular issues that interface with project
development and real estate transactions, such as the termination of leases, renovation and urgent use by the landlord itself.

Sight is a niche firm in the field of construction and real estate law. Most of its clients are commercial construction and real estate parties.
