Legal Advice

Commercial/ Business Law

Production, purchasing, procurement and sales are the heart of an operating company. If only one of these areas falters, this has an effect on the whole company. This effect is further intensified by the globalization of markets - as the current Corona crisis shows.

How do you set up water­tight purcha­sing and dis­tri­bu­tion struc­tu­res and how are con­trac­tual rela­ti­onships mana­ged? Which risk avo­i­dance stra­te­gies are necessary, for example, in the case of pro­duct recalls and how to deal with sup­ply chains and custo­mers in cri­sis situa­ti­ons?

Due to the cen­tral func­tion of purcha­sing, pro­cu­re­ment, sales and pro­duc­tion, robust con­tract struc­tu­res are essen­tial for com­pa­nies to ope­rate legally com­p­li­ant and suc­cess­fully in the mar­ket. Espe­cially in times of cri­sis, it beco­mes appa­rent whe­ther the con­tracts suf­fi­ci­ently secure the inte­rests of the com­pany and mini­mize risks.

Inter­na­tio­nal con­trac­tual rela­ti­onships wit­hin the mar­kets are gro­wing with the advan­cing glo­ba­liza­tion. Inter­na­tio­nal con­tracts must be adap­ted to the rele­vant natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal trade customs, dif­fe­rent legal sys­tems and cul­tu­ral dif­fe­ren­ces of the con­trac­ting par­ties. Whe­ther it is the regu­la­ti­ons of cross-bor­der online trade, which is beco­ming inc­rea­sin­gly dif­fi­cult to under­stand, or the inc­rea­sing com­ple­xity of deli­very parts in pro­duc­tion and depen­den­cies wit­hin sup­ply chains - we sup­port you in your diverse busi­ness acti­vi­ties.

Our lawy­ers work in many fields of law in an inter­di­s­ci­p­li­nary man­ner and con­cen­t­rate exclu­si­vely on the aspects rele­vant to your com­pany in the respec­tive fields of law, while at the same time being clo­sely connec­ted with each other.

The fol­lo­wing app­lies to every area of our cli­ents' busi­ness acti­vi­ties: Toge­ther with you, we think ent­re­p­re­neu­rially and find eco­no­mi­cally sen­si­ble solu­ti­ons that are tai­lor-made for your com­pany.
