What others say about us
"Outstanding reputation for advice on distribution contracts, most notably franchising, dealerships and agency agreements in the hospitality, automotive and pharmaceutical sectors. Also advises on all issues relating to the setting up of e-commerce platforms, including the IP, regulatory and IT aspects."
Chambers Europe 2016
"The firm remains one of the leading law firms in distribution and franchising law, as it not only has many eminent partners within its ranks but also provides a particularly wide range of advice. Both these factors mean that the firm is able to continually acquire prominent new clients. (…) At the same time, the practice is also making a name for itself in franchising law: Noerr’s involvement in several landmark cases, some before the Federal Court of Justice, underlines its expertise in this field of advice. Based on the topic of e-commerce, which is increasingly maturing into the advice-intensive topic of omnichannel, its work on logistics matters, where the team often advises in connection with compliance investigations, has also recently intensified."
JUVE Handbook 2015/16
"Recommended practice for foreign trade. The firm has understood the need to link various areas of its wide professional practice meaning that it is able to offer a very extensive range of advice."
JUVE Handbook 2015/16
"Highly recommended practice covering the full range of commercial topics, including distribution systems, franchise law, supply agreements and logistics issues."
Chambers Europe 2015
The recommended foreign trade law practice has developed even further under the roof of the firm's multi-faceted public law division. (…) Only a few firms have driven forward the expansion of an export control and customs legislation specialism so quickly and consistently.
JUVE Handbook 2013/14
Highly recommended practice for foreign trade which, two years after its formation, has redefined itself with more comprehensive expert know-how and personnel. Noerr’s advice [has] auspiciously dovetailed civil and public-law aspects. Links with the highly regarded Compliance & Investigations and Distribution practice groups are likely to intensify even further.
