Contract drafting // contract disputes

Concept Development and Contract Drafting

  • I am just starting my own business. Who can draw up general terms and conditions for me and check whether my website is legally compliant?
  • I am about to buy a condominium. Who will draw up the purchase contract for me? Who will pay taxes and fees for me?
  • I would like to give my house to my children, but reserve the right to live in the house until my death. Who will draw up the deed of gift for me? Do I have to pay gift tax or make a gift declaration?

Representation in contract disputes

  • I bought a house. Massive building defects came to light during renovation work. Can I hold the seller or the construction company harmless, even if the warranty was largely excluded in the purchase contract?
  • Do I have to pay extra costs that were hidden in the general terms and conditions when the contract was concluded?
  • The cost estimate I was given was far exceeded. Do I still have to pay?
