Pontarius combines the benefits of classical engineering and business law. Pontarius Law is not a law firm. We do not focus on the dispute but on solutions – in favor of the good project. We work at the forefront of the project to anticipate and avoid potential pitfalls and disputes by finding solutions before this occurs. However, these solutions do not have the main purpose of managing problems. Instead, the purpose and the great gain of hiring an experienced lawyer is that the project will proceed much smoother from the start. You will notice that this benefits all of the project’s stakeholders, both those who work in the project itself and those who are directly or indirectly concerned by it.
Globalization, digitization, urbanization…
…three major trends that permeates today’s increasingly sophisticated society; trends in which Pontarius, with our knowledge in infrastructure, is located at the forefront of development. However, it is starting to become more and more evident that successful projects within these trends are heavily dependent on knowledge about law.
In the complexity of our industry, legal consultants at Pontarius Law work together with all our experienced technical and financial infrastructure consultants. We facilitate and stabilize the interaction with the environment and society in general and in your specific project, business or activity. This gives us a unique strength that is hard to find elsewhere. Add the many years of legal experience specially connected to infrastructure, and you have a resource that can follow your project and create value and ease in all its steps and challenges.
