BGP succeeds against international hotel group

18. December 2016

A prestigious 5-star hotel in Berne shall be renovated, it should not cost too much, so let the workers work and negotiate the fees later. Not with BGP!

On December 16, 2016 BGP achieves - after more than 4 years of court proceedings - a big and long expected victory in front of the Commercial Court of Berne against the hotel owners from Quatar. The responsible architects will finally get their well-earned fees.
