Our priority is a dedication to and full knowledge of the energy sector with its entire chain of value; from strategic reasoning and decisions to assistance in day-to-day operations. To offer a more comprehensive multidisciplinary service, we have strong alliances that accompany  Schlaich slp in our work.

Together with our technical allies, we monitor long and complex contractual relationships, such as implementing projects and construction work contracts between Spanish and German companies.

Schlaich slp represents the interests of one of the parties during the contractual relationship to manage and control risks in advance, ensure a solid evidentiary position and, above all, avoiding disputes and lawsuits. It is important to highlight the technical-legal approach of an experienced team: Contract Management preserves and increases the value of ongoing projects because we know that conflicts and litigation destroy value.

    Contract Management also includes our collaboration in drawing up contracts related to building and operating the project. We are accustomed to negotiating contracts according to FIDIC standards with specialised engineers.

    During the contract fulfilment phase, e.g., during the construction of a building or an energy plant, we secure and create in situ the necessary evidence regarding the achievement of milestones, irregularities or delays. The contractually relevant technical facts and their causes must be documented and unequivocally communicated to the other party in due time, together with the legal, technical and economic consequences derived from the contract. Thus the promoter or developer reinforces their position. Contract Management is essential to prepare the final contract liquidation and eventual escalation, if inevitable.
