Commercial

LUTZ I ABEL advises companies in all areas and on any contract, distribution or commercial law issues about purely internal German matters and on legal questions with an international focus. We possess years of experience when it comes to advising distribution or logistics departments, business managers of medium-sized companies or legal departments of globally active groups, especially in the supplier and trade industries, across various sectors. Our consultants strive to find solutions tailored to each of our clients' cases. This includes providing consultation before and during the conclusion of supply, distribution or logistics contracts or when drafting, reviewing, negotiating or terminating such contracts. Furthermore, we advise our clients on court and out-of-court defenses against claims or on the assertion of their own claims under all types of trade and distribution agreements.
