Public real property

In the public construction and project ownership sector, the Public Law team at Cornet Vincent Ségurel advises public authorities, investors and operators on public real property operations.

In the public construction and project ownership sector, Cornet Vincent Ségurel advises:

  • Public authorities
  • Investors and operators on the definition, organisation and implementation of public real property operations.


Our expertise relates to:

  • Analysis of the regulatory feasibility of projects (domain classification, implementation of public works, volume division, off-plan sale, subdivision of property rights, long-term or building leases, sale subject to obligations, calls for proposals, etc.)
  • Comprehensive support to ensure land ownership management: amicable acquisition, pre-emption, expropriation, etc.


Our multidisciplinary approach enables us to understand this area from all sides: real property law, public procurement law, domanial law, urban planning law, local government law, construction law and insurance law. This constitutes a decisive asset from the time of choosing the operation’s contractual arrangements to the preparation of urban planning authorisations, drafting service or project management agreements, or preparing interim summary proceedings.

We support our clients in relation to amicable settlements, expertise and litigation in the following areas:

  • Management of accounts settlement, events in performance of works contracts, relationships with insurers, implementation of contractual and legal constructor guarantees

  • Litigation in the area of public works in relation to administrative liability (private nuisance, damage to third parties)

  • Criminal infringements of urban planning law and litigation related to public property occupancy (expulsion of occupants without legal title, dispossession by public authorities and blatantly unlawful conduct)
