General Contract Law

Sales and procurement for producers, suppliers and retailers require ever more complex contractual arrangements, which need to take into account both the adjacent and overlapping areas of law such as German and European unfair competition law, as well as the increasing globalization of markets. We protect and optimize the sales activities of our clients by exploiting the possibilities of legal constructions in their favour, and by taking the industry and product line, as well as possible points of contention, into account. The specific requirements and economic considerations of our clients are our main priority. By drafting an optimal contract, we achieve economic benefits for our clients and avoid risks and disputes. We are regularly entrusted to advise a number of well-known companies in this field, and we also boast a high degree of specialization and vast experience in cross-border contracts.

These include:

 

  • Contract Law
  • framework supply agreements,
  • general terms and conditions,
  • confidentiality agreements,
  • quality assurance agreements,
  • just-in-time contracts,
  • tool contracts,
  • work and service contracts,
  • storage contracts,
  • transport and logistics contracts,
  • research and development contracts,
  • licensing agreements,
  • co-operation agreements,
  • leases.

We also provide our clients with contract management services.

We draft model contracts and update these regularyto reflect the most recent case law and legislative changes. By monitoring, documenting and standardising contracts and GTCs, we can ensure that official and statutory requirements are met and thereby achieve a high degree of legal certainty.

Staff Training

We offer practice-based training courses on the negotiation and conclusion of contracts in procurement or distribution, tailored to the specific needs of our clients. When carrying out training, we review the client’s standard documents in workshops and apply the information learned using practical case studies. All participants are provided with a comprehensive package of training notes.
