Contract law, sales law

Hardly a day goes by without you signing a contract. Be it at the supermarket checkout or at the hairdresser. As a rule, you do not need the help of a lawyer. And that is a good thing. However, every now and then there are contracts that are of such weight that they mean not inconsiderable financial liabilities and risks for you. In such cases, I will be happy to advise you before the contract is signed or to help you negotiate the details of the contract. Even if the execution of the contract does not go as you hoped and expected, we are at your side to examine and enforce warranty, guarantee and/or damage claims or claims for rescission.


Insurance law

The insurance wont pay?

In the insurance contract, it is agreed exactly which insured risk is to be covered and that the insurer must make payment when the insured event – i.e., a loss – occurs. Many people think they are safe because they believe they are covered. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. It is not uncommon for a loss to occur and then for the insurance company to unexpectedly not pay.

Often decisions are delayed, communication is very slow or benefits are denied or reduced without comprehensible justification. Especially when it comes to higher insurance sums, this is more common.

In such cases, legal support is useful and often necessary to enforce claims against the insurer.


Travel law

We take care of your claims in case of defective package tours, refund of the travel price in case of cancellation due to corona or similar. Currently, thousands of already booked package tours have to be cancelled by the providers. Most tour operators almost without exception offer their customers vouchers instead of a refund of the money. They “forget” to mention that the customer has the right on his side if he does not want to accept a voucher.
In case of a flight delay, we assert your claims for compensation according to the EU Passenger Rights Regulation. We have already acted in numerous cases and achieved compensation payments for our clients.


Neighbor law

You feel disturbed by your neighbor ?

Loud music and barbecue smells in summer, overhanging bushes and hedges, barking dogs, stray cats, etc.? The legal basis for regulations in neighbourhood law can be found at the federal or state level and even at the municipal level. In neighbor law, the principle of mutual consideration applies above all.

We help you to find an amicable solution with your neighbor, so that you get back your quality of life.

Traffic and fines law

Have you been in a traffic accident and don’t know what to do?
In the emotional aftermath of an accident, it is easy to get caught up in contradictory statements or to make unnecessary admissions of guilt. We are happy to advise and represent you both out of court and in court, so that you can quickly put the accident behind you. We will assess the liability issues for you and analyze the insurance situation.
Remember that it is never in the interest of the other party’s insurance to pay you the full amount of your damages! Each insurance company regularly pursues its own economic objectives, which it can sometimes only achieve at your expense!

We offer to negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and, if necessary, to assert your rights in court. So that you can sleep soundly again.

Fines, driving bans, withdrawal of driving license

If you receive a fine or a driving ban, or if your driving license is withdrawn, ask for advice. Do not make any statements to the fine authorities or the police until you have sought legal advice.
person who receives a traffic ticket is usually fined for committing an offence. In some cases, however, the recipient of such a letter may not have to pay a fine. When does this happen?
An error on the part of the authorities is a frequent occurrence. For example, problems can arise during the measurement procedure, if the device was not calibrated in accordance with the regulations or was not used correctly. If you ask us to review the notice of violation, we will find these details.
It can also be useful to have us review an imposed fine if the issuing authority has not followed the regulatory procedure. Has the tolerance deduction not been granted? Is mandatory information, such as the indication of the right of appeal, required by Article 66 OWiG missing?We will check for you whether it is possible to lodge an objection to the ticket in order to avoid the fine.

International and European law

Generaly speaking, “international law” is understood to be the law that governs relations among citizens and companies of different countries.

International law can also include the law of the European Union, which has become more extensive and important over the years. In fact, European Union regulations are directly applicable in individual states. Directives, on the other hand, require an implementing order from the individual state.

The world is growing ever closer together through globalization and European integration – employment relationships, business relations and private life are thus becoming more international and have many references to foreign legal systems. However, this also means that legal problems are more complex and can no longer be solved in just one state.

International law brings the world’s different legal systems into a common context. One of the greatest challenges in international law is to determine which legal and international framework applies in a dispute. Depending on whether German or, for example, French law is used, claims, obligations and legal consequences may differ.

We can inform you in good time about which legal requirements apply to you and help you avoid time-consuming and expensive legal disputes in advance.

We assist companies in all international legal relations, especially with France.
