B.I.K.E. is the acronym for our interdisciplinary conflict and decision management for construction projects (Baubegleitendes interdisziplinäres Konflikt- und Entscheidungsmanagement), an HFK product that has proven very successful in practical applications on numerous occasions. Together with construction experts, engineers, architects, and planners, but also with business administrators or other specialist, we take a holistic team approach to advising our clients. B.I.K.E. can be requested for specific questions or problems, or we can implement it right at the start of the project as a risk mitigation measure. B.I.K.E. can be used as a profound and legally solid basis for decisions by project managers, thereby providing more security.Moreover, B.I.K.E. also has a positive impact on out-of-court dispute settlements and decision management. At its core, B.I.K.E. is a unique, interdisciplinary approach to advising clients that goes far beyond purely legal considerations. This allows us to clarify complex questions faster and more efficiently.

This allows us to work through even the most difficult and complex issues quickly and efficiently, which in turn provides us with an ideal basis for a reliable legal assessment and advancement of your interests. HFK Research is especially valuable for small and medium-sized companies. Another benefit of using HFK research teams is the automatic review of your employees’ opinions and assessments, which almost always identifies opportunities for optimization.Moreover, HFK Research brings transparency, uncovers errors within the company, and reveals weaknesses within the company’s systems.
HFK Task Force
When complex problems have to be addressed urgently and time is running out, we put HFK Task Force to work. HFK lawyers will put together powerful specialized teams for a quick intervention. Upon request, the HFK Task Force will be deployed directly at the client’s office, for instance to get derailed projects back on track. Its tasks also include performing a quick analysis of the legal status quo of a project in order to prepare and support decisions. HFK Task Force is deployed Germany-wide through our various offices. Our capacities allow us to quickly put together competent teams that will be available exclusively for your project for as long as necessary. Acting as a rapid intervention force, these specialized teams have already sprung into action in a number of emergencies and were able to solve problems very efficiently, prevent further damage, and save the very existence of some projects.
