Legal Affairs

Playing to the rules means you need fairness – therefore, our Legal and Fairplay Division makes sure that rules can be observed. Then, even the best economic system cannot function without a set of regulations.
Of course our efforts here concentrate on making sure that the expert knowledge within the business community plays an important part in the rules which the state issues. However, we also support entrepreneurs at a much earlier stage. This begins with advice at the start-up: Which legal form is suitable for your enterprise? How can the entry in the trade registry be carried out smoothly without any long delays? How can you make your company name unmistakeable? What is permitted incompetitive situations and where are the limits? How can you regulate the succession question in your company in the best possible manner?
We advise entrepreneurs on all questions concerning commercial law and we show them what is possible. We also point out what should be avoided so that disputes with competitors or clients do not occur in the first place. We recommend honorary financial and commercial judges whose practical experience flows into the decisions of commercial courts. We examine, appoint and specify sworn specialists so that you can obtain expertises which you can rely on.
We support entrepreneurs:
  • by providing companies with advice in all questions concerning competition law and prosecuting any infringements
  • by providing entrepreneurs with information on questions concerning industrial law and carrying out an initial consultation. Furthermore, we ensure that the interests of the business community are reflected in law making processes.
  • By determining the most suitable legal form for an enterprise, as well as helping to select an incontrovertible company name and providing assistance for a rapid trade registry entry.
  • By examining, appointing and specifying sworn specialists.
