International contract law
We offer German clients orientation and support when they engage in international projects abroad and we also assist foreign clients regarding their projects in Germany. Especially we are regularly advising investors, plant manufacturers, architects, engineers and building contractors in all questions relevant for the successful planning and implementation of international projects.
We can look back on extensive experience in many aspects of commercial activities, such as choosing the appropriate company form for our clients, establishing international joint ventures, supporting clients in their successful participation in contract award procedures, drafting contracts and acting as counsel in different modes of conflict resolution.
Depending on the sector either standard-form contracts or bespoke contracts are being used; when dealing with supply contracts the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) as well as the ICC Incoterms might come into play. In this context particular attention should be paid to the interaction between the contract and the applicable law.
We have cooperation partners of many years’ in many countries of the world. When legal questions regarding foreign jurisdictions arise, we can jointly address the relevant issues in an effective and fast manner.
In the event of a claims and other contractual conflicts we support our clients in the negotiations with the counterparty, in court and in arbitration proceedings (e. g. on the basis of the ICC rules). Furthermore, our lawyers also act as mediators, adjudicators and arbitrators on a regular basis.
