The distribution of goods and services requires not only business decisions, but also numerous decisions to establish a legal roadmap. In the Practice Group Distribution & Trade, we combine competence and experience of a number of lawyers who have provided legal counsel to worldwide renowned national and international manufacturers in structuring their distribution systems for many years. We assist our clients in developing the appropriate marketing system for their goods and services or to adapt an existing distribution system to new economic and legal conditions.
We provide counsel to our clients in designing contractual structures and implementing them in entrepreneurial practice. These counseling activities are complemented by in-depth experience in out-of-court, court-based and arbitrational dispute resolutions. In our distribution antitrust law practice, we counsel our clients on designing their distribution agreements in compliance with antitrust law and on adapting to legal bases which are subject to continuous change.
In addition, we advise on the winding up of terminated distribution agreements and find solutions to compensation claims and return requests of distribution partners. Finally, we also support our clients when taking first steps into a new distribution territory. Our international network World Services Group allows us to offer our clients the appropriate solution for cross-border matters.
