Successful business models don’t just happen by chance, and only the best make a continuing mark. The advisors in our Sales, Logistics and Distribution practice group have been engaged in pioneering legal work for decades, ensuring that our clients are able to succeed in new markets or restrictive environments. They put business models under the closest scrutiny and structure the solution to match the company’s objectives.
More than 40 years ago, we helped launch the world’s largest franchise company in the catering industry in Germany with our legal advice. With our help, one automotive manufacturer succeeded in enforcing the termination of a network of authorised dealers as far as the Federal Court of Justice, in the first case of its kind; in this way it was able to realise a leaner distribution structure. We are currently developing multi-channel distribution systems that are setting legal and entrepreneurial benchmarks.
During our work, we deploy individual teams consisting of experienced advisors and spanning the various areas of expertise and, where appropriate, countries. This often includes experts in distribution, antitrust, trademark and competition law as well as IT law and data protection (in connection with new digital business models). Where necessary, lawyers experienced in foreign trade law as well as litigation and arbitration complete the team.
Regardless of how complex or ambitious the challenge may be, and regardless of whether a large corporation or mid-sized company is involved, we always provide our clients with an in-depth analysis and clear and convincing recommendations for action. And this wherever you need us: in Germany, Central and Eastern Europe and via our tried and tested relationships with recognised law firms worldwide.
