Conflicts – with other market participants or authorities – are unfortunately unavoidable in business. Of course, not every conflict has to end up in court. On the contrary, negotiating a reasonable (commercial) settlement is often the faster and more cost-effective solution. Therefore, our advice ideally starts well before a court case.
If a conflict is looming, we record and analyze the factual and legal situation together with you, assess the strengths and weaknesses of your own position and explore the possibility of a quick settlement. We assist you in the settlement negotiations and in the development of a settlement agreement that reflects your interests in the best possible way.
In court proceedings, we represent your interests competently and vigorously before all state courts. Together with you, we develop a tailor-made litigation strategy that takes into account not only the specific case, but also your long-term economic interests. Keeping a cool head at all times and not losing sight of the essentials even in complex disputes is a matter of course for us.
We have particular experience in disputes in the areas of product liability and product compliance as well as warranty rights and contractual liability. In addition, we are happy to assist you in case of competition law disputes involving regulatory non-compliance. We also have extensive experience in dealing with authorities and regulatory proceedings as well as administrative court disputes.
You further benefit from our expertise in litigation when we act for you in an advisory or contract drafting capacity: Diligent and balanced drafting of contractual agreements can avoid conflicts. Skilful contract drafting can also ensure that your own rights are protected in the best possible way in the event of a legal dispute.
