LWA is a player that is fully devoted to the design and construction of tomorrow’s cities, around the idea of a committed city, which is resilient, economical with respect to energy, connected, social, long-lasting and active.

While being alongside the public contracting authorities and private operators, project managers and developers while not forgetting the layout contractors, energy contractors, data managers or even property companies, LWA’s lawyers are dedicated to serving your projects from their initiation up to their implementation.

We have developed an extensive engineering line in real property contractual law, data law (personal and public), public-private arrangements, construction law, energy law, real property tax and corporate law to support projects that are complex and mixed in essence.

Our know-how is recognised and relies on several fields of expertise with a process that is intentionally global and not side lined.

LWA is particularly active in the mobility sector where it assists its clients both with the implementation of new displacement policies and with the creation of transportation infrastructures.

Our interventions are varied and are intended to clarify the legal regimes and procedures that are applicable to our clients and for assisting them all along the rollout of the projects.

One of LWA’s assets is to have the ability to mobilise diverse fields of expertise, which proves to be particular necessary in the transportation sector given the diversity of questions that are susceptible of being raised (public law, taxation of transportations, use of personal data, IP, state aids, environment…).

LWA’s current interventions deal with the opening of competition in the railway sector, projects for the implementation of Mobility as a Service (MaaS), or even the management of public contracts that take into account the sanitary crisis relating to the COVID-19 epidemic and the stakes of the energetic transition in this sector.

In a political and societal context that is characterised by the necessity of having to comply with the growing challenges of environmental protection and having to promote a sustainable development, the industrial groups, real property and layout players, as well as public entities must apprehend the issues of environmental and sustainable development.

During this sanitary crisis linked to the COVID-19 epidemic, it has become essential for all players to become resilient so as to anticipate and optimise the management of environmental, energetic and sanitary risks and firmly engage themselves on the energetic transition path.

In this context, LWA, which is an engaged player in the area of sustainable development, assists its private and public clients both with counselling – in contractual or auditing matters – as well as administrative or judicial litigation, in connection with the dynamic management of their real property assets, the environmental risks relating to their activities, or even the definition and implementation of measures for reducing the ecological footprint of economic, industrial or even institutional activities.

Therefore, LWA’s lawyers have developed fine expertise to assist with the energetic efficiency refurbishment of buildings, the sustainable valuation of real property assets and development of innovative arrangements in the area of renewable energies (methanisation, hydraulic energy, biomass…), as well as with the mastering of the technological, sanitary and environmental risks of the projects.

Here again, LWA reinforces its trademark of agile law firm by providing you with the availability of dedicated project teams grouping all required fields of expertise for your complex projects (energy law, environmental law, competition law, civil, commercial and criminal litigation, tax law…).

In these times of digital transition, sometimes forcibly imposed, so as to face the sanitary crisis linked to the COVID-19 epidemic, in particular, all players, both private and public, have to face the legal challenges of digital technology.

LWA was created at the beginning of the ‘Internet bubble’ and is perfectly aware of them.

It has been involved since this era in the profound changes that have affected the activities of the most diversified players, whether they be domestic or international large companies, start-ups or public establishments. Some are players for which digital technology is the core business (start-ups, software editors, websites or mobile applications, vendors, suppliers of e-health services…). Others are private or public players and were pioneers or forced, for their requirements, to digitalise their professions (off-the-shelf software solutions or specific software, HR management departments wanting to rollout an HRIS…).

This multidisciplinary vision, which is always offered and provided in a pragmatic manner, is our added value: your safety asset.

In a sector that is constantly changing, companies and organisations in the life sciences and health sector (healthcare establishments, pharmaceutical industries, medtechs/biotechs or even investment funds) have to face an increasing number of technological, legal and legislative challenges.

Whether your project integrates a digital dimension, artificial intelligence, in particular, or whether it is subjected to medical liability law, LWA assists you and is able to offer you cross disciplinary skills both in the area of counselling and litigation, regarding the contractual, tax, corporate, social, personal data, intellectual property, public, competition law and State aid aspects.
