Commercial and Corporate Law

We know how you act legally

Commercial and corporate law is the basis for nearly all entrepreneurial actions. Business people, partnerships and corporations must comply with extensive legal requirements with regard to their own organization and their business transactions in dealing with their contract partners. In the area of corporate law, we provide in-depth counsel to companies, supervisory boards and managing directors as well as on all legal aspects of commercial law. This includes franchising and distribution agreements and the revision and preparation of general business conditions, contracts with sales representatives or problems pertaining to international sales laws.
