In addition to the core areas of commercial and corporate law, our attorneys’ practice also ranges to other areas of business law. In the field of insolvency law, we regularly advise and act as counsel for our clients in matters surrounding the avoidance of insolvency proceedings against the insolvency administrator. This involves both the drafting of watertight contractual agreements as well as defending against challenges from insolvency administrators. Our activities encompass also the frequent filing and enforcement of insolvency claims.
In the area of law governing transport and freight forwarding, we work for numerous transport and logistics companies and their shareholders. Our activities in this field include not only special questions revolving around freight forwarding and freight law, but also regular counsel and advice on more general commercial and maritime law issues.
Finally, we provide our clients with comprehensive support in all areas of competition law and in the field of intellectual property. We attend to the protection and registration of patents, trademarks and other intellectual property rights and are happy to work together with technically experienced patent attorneys. In the event of infringements of competition law, we take care of pronounced warnings or claims asserted in interim legal protection — or we ourselves assert claims for injunctive relief under competition law on behalf of our clients. Our clients also rely on our skills and competence in matters involving anti-trust law — whether it be the establishment of structures in the context of distribution law or penalty and fine proceedings initiated by the Bundeskartellamt (competition authority in Germany).
