SBS | Specializations Sales Law

We create the framework conditions for successful sales.

A successful distribution organization is the cornerstone for business success. The course must be set on some legal aspects here besides making the economic decisions. Since the time of our founding, the legal field of sales law has been one of the big key areas of the law firm SBS Legal.

Sales law covers a large number of legal aspects. Relevant regulations are provided in the provisions of the Commercial Code (HGB) and in the provisions of the Civil Code (BGB). Beyond this, however, the legal fields of competition law (UWG) and anti-trust law (GWB), which also play a central role at the law firm SBS Legal, must not be left outside of consideration.

The lawyers at the law firm SBS Legal provide advice on a variety of constellations under sales law:

Before the inception of the contractual relationship, we will set the cornerstone for a legally secured sales activity by means of the optimal structuring of the contracts. Especially in the context of selective distribution system, the course is set here decisively. In the further process, we will be at your side at all times as a reliable partner for finding practical solutions in matters relating to commissions, competitive activity or solicitation of employees or clients. If the distribution agreement is terminated prematurely, we will enforce the rights in your entitlement relating to still outstanding or cancelled commissions, excerpts from the books, and compensation claims in an efficient manner.
