Determining the route
Sometimes, one does not even realize that a contract has been made…in the canteen, on the tram, at the baker’s. These contracts seldom pose problems.
However, very important contracts with vast consequences are often also made, without the parties having given them sufficient thought. In our scope of practice, these contracts usually arise from three different areas:
- contracts relating to intangible rights(i.e. copyrights and trademark rights)
- contracts with employees
- contracts regarding company structure in business law
All three areas are often neglected because they don’t pose any major problems in the beginning. The contracts are then only examined closely in the case of a conflict, when it is too late for a balanced drafting. We therefore advise our clients to carefully check contract drafts before the contracts are concluded. This saves a lot of time, nerves, and money afterwards.
