Expertise
Companies and contracts

The drafting of contracts is a fine art that requires extensive experience, which our attorneys have. Our many years of experience in the conduct of litigation also enable us to assess contractual risks accurately. We draft, revise, and negotiate comprehensive contracts and help to minimize liability risks and ensure appropriate warranty provisions. We counsel clients about the drafting of general terms and conditions of business, especially for online sales, and of complex distribution agreements. Where sales personnel are concerned, we create reasonable terms and conditions for the payment of commissions, especially for the period after the termination of the contract.

Our attorneys at the Frankfurt/Main office have, among other qualifications, special knowledge specific to the automotive industry and medical products. Moreover, they are specialists in energy law issues, particularly regarding energy supply contracts, and can point to many years of experience in the field of mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
