Construction and government

General administrative law

Whenever entrepreneurs, institutions or private individuals come into contact with the government, administrative law peeks its head around the corner. Administrative law regulates government actions and decision-making and stipulates the legal protections that can be invoked against public authorities. Administrative law differs from civil law and criminal law; it is founded on the General Administrative Law Act (Algemene wet bestuursrecht). The lawyers at Rassers are familiar with all the ins and outs of administrative law and are happy to help their clients with questions in this area. They also have extensive litigation experience at venues up to and including the highest administrative courts.
