Practice Areas

Ranked Tier 1 in Real Estate: Construction by Chambers Europe


The construction industry is best served by dedicated lawyers who do nothing but serve this sector.

About us

After having practiced in Big Law for many years we decided that time had come to start a law firm that focuses exclusively on the needs of the construction industry. Having advised on nearly every significant project in the Netherlands in the past ten years, we know all the best practices and have helped shaping them. Every one of us is fascinated with the techniques and tools used in the construction industry, something we consider a prerequisite to working at HabrakenRutten.

We are aware that the difference between profit and loss is in the details. Risk mitigation, dispute prevention and early resolution of conflicts, often on a "real-time" basis, are fundamental to our advice. When it has been necessary, we have represented the full spectrum of industry players in major litigations and arbitrations. 

Our clients value the depth of expertise and the wealth of experience that we have in their sector. We know like few others what the needs of its stake holders are. It is our firm belief that the construction industry is best served by dedicated lawyers who do nothing but serve this sector.

Career opportunities

We are a boutique law firm with the ambition of staying at the top of our field advising the construction industry. If you are as enthusiastic as we are about engineering, technique and machines and want to be part of advising on high-stake projects and contentious issues for clients in this industry, then we would love to hear from you.
