Commercial and Distribution Law

International trade law and distribution law is as multifaceted as international trade itself. It can be simple and obvious, but even in such "simple" cases, sound and professional guidance is needed in the background. Economically efficient trading sometimes requires complex structures to make the most of the realities in the global world economy. Hence, international trade and distribution agreements require appropriate risk management and must meet the highest standards.

We advise clients not only on the structuring of their distribution channels or the drafting of supply contracts. Where necessary, we also have an eye on distribution antitrust law as well as mandatory provisions of export and foreign exchange control law.

Without professional advice customs regulations are often overlooked by parties involved in international transactions. Issues of national and international corporate and tax law are also often of importance and must be taken into account. If necessary we can draw on our long-standing network to offer interdisciplinary legal advice as a one-stop shop.

In our globalized world even supposedly national trade law and distribution law matters must always be seen in the light of international agreements, EU law and international law. Our strong expertise in the area of bridge-building law helps us being a competent advisor and partner for our clients in complex issues.
