CMS Vienna Partner Nikolaus Weselik will take over as the head of the working group on construction contract law and construction procedural law of the Austrian Society of Construction Law and Construction Business Management.
According to CMS, “this group plays a key role in the evaluation and further development of the Austrian construction contract and construction procedural law in cooperation with various representatives of the industry and bodies, such as Austrian standards. The results of the working group can form the basis for further legal developments in this area of law.”
Weselik, who has more than 20 years of experience, heads CMS's Vienna's Construction and Real Estate Practice. “[The Austrian Society of Construction Law and Construction Business Management] is an important platform in the field of construction law and the construction industry,” he commented. “A great deal of specialist expertise and practical knowledge flows into it. It is the place where fundamental, emerging issues are often discussed and further developed. I am very pleased to now chair this working group and perhaps also to be able to take steps towards the further development of this area."
The Austrian Society of Construction Law and Construction Business Management was founded in 1978. Its primary goal is to promote the exchange of opinions on issues of public and private construction law among professionally, economically, and politically relevant and interested parties.
