Brokerage law is case law; a differentiated legal codification is absent from German law. Therefore, legal representation requires experience and sure instinct. The factual situation is rarely straightforward to prove. Almost never, a clear and explicit written contractual basis exists. Frequently, however, the demands are considerable, which holds potential for conflict. The requirement of taking of evidence by the targeted examination of witnesses is gaining importance, as is the drafting of court settlements. In order to assess the risks, a meticulously working and critical legal adviser is thus required.
We are familiar with both sides of the conflict. Both the enforcement of broker’s commission claims as well as their defence is one of our tasks in this sector.
