schaller.law is a boutique law firm with focus on contracts, finance, liability and criminal law. We advise, support and litigate the matters of our customers in a sophisticated, time- and cost-effient manner.
We mainly practice in the three areas contracts and finance, liability and criminal law, disputes and litigation.
Contracts and Finance
Contracts of any kind are one of our core compentences. -- We draw up, negotiate and enforce them for you. For more than a decade, we have gathered profound experience in banking and finance as well as real estate legal matters, not only with regard to contracts and breaches of contract, but also with regard to regulatory and criminal matters of law.
Liability and (Penal Law-) Defence
Has one of your businesses gone south? -- We support and advice entrepreneurs, service providers and individuals and defend them in liability and ("white collar"-) criminal cases. We also protect your interests if you are affected by a criminal offence. Further, we conduct investigations. For prevention purposes, we also advise decision-makers (such as board members and directors).
Disputes and Litigation
Do you have a claim, but the counterparty is not willing to give in? -- We are happy to take over. We support you in the enforcement of your claim: first, if appropriate, in an out-of-court dialogue; second, if need be, at the court. We assist and represent you during the whole court proceedings.
Prof. Dr. iur.
