Our counselling activities in contract law are oriented on the life cycle of a product: From R&D agreements, manufacturing and supply agreements and quality assurance agreements to complex project contracts, we offer customised solutions in contract design. We participate in contract negotiations, if so desired, or work in the background. In addition, we provide fast and goal-oriented support to your specialist departments when questions arise in daily business.
Where disputes cannot be settled out of court, we will of course represent your interests in disputes before national courts as well as before domestic and foreign arbitration panels.
In addition to liability for damages, defective products can threaten a company's image as well as prompt government actions and criminal proceedings. In case of liability, we handle extrajudicial and judicial representation in the defence against unfounded claims. We are likewise pleased to assist you in settling substantiated claims with contract partners and injured parties, and in asserting claims in the downstream supplier chain and against insurers.
Compliance with relevant product laws and standards is a minimum requirement for the successful sale of products at the national and international level. We support you in fulfilling regulatory requirements and represent you before registration bodies and official authorities.
Legal risk management
We work with you to develop systematic procedures for dealing with legal risks in your company, starting with risk identification and extending to risk management for all of your desired business areas. This includes the development of guidelines for the drafting of contracts or specifications as well as the evaluation of production and administrative processes from a legal perspective.
In addition to lectures and seminars for external organisers, we offer in-house seminars and training tailored to the needs of your company and your chosen audience. Our seminars and training are not limited purely to knowledge transfer but also serve to strengthen the awareness and problem-solving competence of the specialist departments in legal matters through working together on practical cases.
