Contract law
Our counselling activities in contract law are oriented on the life cycle of a product. From R&D agreements, manufacturing and supply agreements and quality assurance agreements to complex project contracts, we offer customised solutions in contract design. We participate in contract negotiations, if so desired, or work in the background. In addition, we represent your interests in the event of disputes arising from contracts, both out of court and before national courts as well as before domestic and foreign arbitration panels.

Product liability law
In addition to liability for damages, defective products can threaten a company’s image as well as prompt government actions and criminal proceedings. In case of liability, we handle extrajudicial and judicial representation in the defence against unfounded claims. We are likewise pleased to assist you in settling substantiated claims with contract partners and injured parties, and in asserting claims in the downstream supplier chain and against insurers. We support you in developing and implementing preventive measures to counter the risk of product liability cases before they occur.

Product Compliance
Compliance with relevant product laws and standards is a minimum requirement for the successful sale of products at the national and international level. We support you in fulfilling regulatory requirements and represent you before registration bodies and official authorities.

We not only possess traditional legal expertise but also strive to align this expertise with the individual requirements of our clients, their products and their industrial sectors.
