About act FORT

About act FORT

As a business owner or an investor, or as an officer at an international corporation, medium-sized business or public authority, you want a partner at your side who is familiar with the market and knows exactly what is going on in your sector. A partner who promotes your interests and helps to devise solutions – on request and of their own accord. A partner who both sees the big picture and tends to the details. A partner focused entirely on your case.

As our client, you are our key focus. And by joining forces, we can get things done. act FORT specialises in real estate law and corporate law, and all related issues. Our specialists pool their knowledge, which transcends those specific legal fields, in order to achieve the best result.

We have many years of experience in the real estate, retail and hotels & leisure sectors, and enjoy working for clients who, like us, are plucky and a little headstrong. We go through fire and water and, if necessary, cross boundaries for them. Because we are the only medium-sized firm that, thanks to our act legal European alliance, can also help you realise your ambitions at an international level.

act FORT is a division of act legal, a growing alliance of independent, mid-sized law firms in nine European countries. With almost 400 lawyers, act legal offers high-quality advice at competitive rates.

act FORT is also a division of the Abacus global network.
