Isabelle Carton de Grammont, partner, has been involved for 25 years in public/private real estate law: urban planning, development, environment, land action and construction. She is the regular counsel of many public or private actors whom she assists in the implementation of their development and construction operations.

In order to provide regulatory and secure support for projects, her legal skills cover:

  • from land use planning: amicable acquisitions (drafting and/or analysis of preliminary contracts) or forced acquisitions (expropriation, pre-emption, relinquishment);
  • to setting up the construction or development operation: drafting and negotiating public and private contracts, competitive bidding procedures, complex arrangements, environmental procedures, urban planning authorizations and regulations, financing.

She also advises clients on construction law, at various stages of the project, from preparation to support during the construction phase to post-acceptance litigation, including the implementation of legal guarantees and the use of insurance policies.

She deals with all legal and judicial issues in these areas as well as in matters of leases and co-ownership. She also acts in general public law.
