Compliance and Manager Liability
Adherence to the statutory laws and framework conditions is a vital precondition for lasting business success and responsible corporate management. Our lawyers apply dedication and sound judgement in advising and supporting companies in all matters relating to compliance. In the event of liability claims, managers of listed corporations and medium-sized companies entrust our firm with the task of raising a successful defence.
We advise companies and their executive bodies on all compliance issues. The primary aim is to optimise the company’s compliance systems from the start; a further important focus of our work, however, is dealing with compliance cases and associated liability issues which may already have arisen. If there has been a violation of duty, our lawyers act with determination and commitment in asserting the company’s claims; in such cases our clients benefit from the particular expertise of our lawyers in the field of litigation. We cooperate closely with experienced criminal defence lawyers to guarantee a comprehensive and seamless protection of our clients’ interests.
Manager Liability and Advising Executives
In recent times, manager liability claims have assumed sometimes potentially devastating dimensions. For many years now, the firm has specialised in helping management boards, managing directors and supervisory boards successfully defend such liability claims. Our clients include both DAX-managements and directors of medium-sized companies. We have been involved in many of the prominent compliance cases of the past few years. A particular focus of our work lies on insurance law issues arising in connection with D&O-insurances. In appropriate situations we also advise our clients on alternative dispute resolution methods and, in particular, act as counsel in arbitration proceedings.
