Areas of activity

Construction, real estate and project management

Bauen, Immobilien und Projektsteuerung

Large construction projects succeed when the legal relationships between builders, architects, construction companies and investors are built on a solid foundation. ROLEMA provides you with support in construction contract law, architectural and engineering law and in all legal issues regarding project management. Of course, we will also be on hand to assist you at any time during the construction phase.  


Are you planning to purchase a property? Then you cannot do without an accurate check of all legal relationships linked with the property. With our knowledge of real estate law and commercial landlord and tenant law, we take on the necessary due diligence check and create and negotiate the acquisition contract for you – no matter if it is arranged as an asset deal or share deal.  


Our experienced notary’s office will advise you independently and neutrally with the notarisation of your contracts. ROLEMA’s core areas include creating developer contracts and declarations of division. Our comprehensive experience in building development law is based on the formulation of numerous contracts for large apartment buildings and part-ownership buildings. We are happy to provide you with this experience. 

Structuring, investment, mergers

Founding a company is a complex process. In addition to corporate law, tax law, commercial law and, in some instances, capital market law are touched upon. Our advice is also appropriately complex. We advise you on the suitable company structure and provide you with information about fiscal and other framework conditions.  


Are you considering a business acquisition, company restructure, investment or merger? The following also applies in the area of mergers & acquisitions: We develop contracts for you and solve any problems that occur through structured and systematic action. 

Procurement, planning law

Anyone wanting a chance at contracts awarded by public authorities must have successfully participated in procurement procedures. We are on hand to provide you with competent and committed advice in the complex legal environment of procurement law and advise you in all stages of the awarding procedure.  


Furthermore, we support you in construction planning law and urban planning legislation at all stages of the process: in administrative procedures, opposition proceedings and, if necessary, legal action.  

Succession, wills, foundations

Nachfolge, Testamente, Stiftungen

Inheritance issues are private issues. This also applies when a company belongs to the estate A confidential client-lawyer relationship is especially important in this case. 


Thanks to our specialist knowledge, we will competently advise you in inheritance law, whether that be drafting a will, clarifying corporate succession, administering an estate or issues regarding execution of a will. If an inheritance dispute is unavoidable, we will represent you reliably and competently.  


Do you want to establish a foundation for the administration of an estate? Then take advantage of our great wealth of experience that we owe not least to our work on the board of trustees for different foundations. We will design the foundation statute for you and provide the notarisation in close collaboration with the competent foundation authorities.  

Employment contracts, insurance

Arbeitsverhältnisse, Versicherungen

A company’s success depends heavily on its staff and labour law is the interface between the interests of the company and its staff. We advise and represent you in all matters of individual and collective labour law so that employment contracts, collective wage agreements and company agreements do not turn into pitfalls for your company. 


You need insurance cover to protect your financial risks. With our specialist knowledge in insurance law, we provide support in your contract negotiations with insurance companies so that you are really protected and do not fall through the cracks should the worst happen. But if it does come down to a claim, we will fight for your interests, even in the event of a major claim.
