Business law, insolvency law, civil law
The work of our law firm encompasses all areas relating to advice on business law and representation in legal matters which can arise in the context of companies pursuing their business purposes and commercial activities, as well as for private individuals. In offering advice on business law, we naturally draw on our experience and expertise from other areas of law.
Our activities also comprise all areas of insolvency law, in particular, advisory services and representation of creditors, debtors and management in connection with insolvencies, as well as in the context of liability issues pertaining to executive bodies. We are also mandated by insolvency administrators to provide legal opinions and represent them in court in the event of complex legal questions affecting liability and rights of appeal. Moreover, we offer support for corporate transactions associated with insolvency proceedings.
CONTRACT LAW / LAW ON GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS
Backed by decades of experience, we draft customised contracts for our clients, general terms and conditions and contractual clauses. We also undertake to modify existing contracts and terms and conditions of business to reflect the current status of the law and jurisprudence.
We advise our clients in processes involving the awarding of contracts and tender procedures (German Regulations on Contract Awards for Public Works (VOB/A and VOB/B)) and undertake legal representation for them relating to legal protection in the award of public contracts, especially in respect of judicial review procedures in procurement matters (vergaberechtliche Nachprüfungsverfahren).
