Key Principles of centerline/
We examine contracts from as many perspectives as possible. Different disciplines are taken into account, as are the various contractual partners. Contracts are also analyzed for their social impact within the company and between the contracting parties.
Only if the interests of all contractual partners are fairly reflected in the contract the basis for a successful project execution has been established. Excessively one-sided contracts or strongly tactical behavior of a contractual partner only lead to project success in rare cases.
We conduct contract analyses for crisis projects as a basis for out-of-court dispute resolution or as preparation for arbitration or court proceedings.
