Your company has a dispute with a customer, supplier or competitor, which entails commercial implications under German law. This is likely foreign to you and may cause additional, undue frustration and annoyance. Your legal counsel must understand you and your problem. Above all, your advisors must ensure that the conflict is resolved as quickly and painlessly as possible.

A major asset of your company lies in its industrial and intellectual property. This may come under attack. Competitors, hackers or simply trolls lying in Germany (indeed, such antagonists exist in Germany) may have you in their sights and your IP as well. The last thing you wish to do is lose control of these hard-gained assets. To do so you must utilize all possibilities for protection and security that German law provides.

All too often your IT company’s advisory needs cannot simply be ascribed to a ready-fit scenario, although it is clear that you are floating without adequate support: You lack a permanent, dependable contact in Germany, who is ready and equipped to handle your legal matters and address your misgivings. Your legal counsel should think like you and speak both your native and commercial language.

It is our constant aim to use all possible means from our concrete advisory to the administration of your mandate in making your work life as stress-free as possible. Regardless of the interaction, we treat you with the respect and esteem that we expect unto ourselves.
We understand the proper and measured use of legal force. It is our practice to provide legal advisory services that help you achieve your IT objectives: Our work – structured, tempered, concise and to the point.
