Automobile Sector

It is unquestionable that the German automobile industry is highly reputed throughout the world.  We have been advising well-known national and international companies in the automotive industry for years. Our legal expertise is backed up by an in-depth knowledge of the industry so that we can provide practical and tailored advice.

Our team has many years of experience in advising and representing German and non-German automotive manufacturers, suppliers, and dealers. We have industry-specific know-how throughout the entire supply chain and provide comprehensive advice to our clients on any type of legal issue that may arise in the automobile industry.

We work together and advise our clients on M&A transactions, corporate restructurings, protecting IP rights, and on preparing license and supply agreements. As our clients are active in the ever-evolving e-mobility and self-driving and networked driving industries, we also advise our clients on corresponding issues, in particular liability issues, intellectual property rights, and data privacy matters. Additionally, we advise our automobile industry clients on labor and employment and commercial issues.

Finally, we litigate on behalf of our clients to defend them when either corporate or commercial disputes arise. We develop tailor-made strategies for our clients, always keeping their financial and corporate interests in mind, to enforce claims or to defend against claims made against our clients before German courts or before international arbitration tribunals.
