COMMERCIAL, TRADE AND CORPORATE LAW
Commercial law has always been an important element of our work. Being a law firm with a long-standing tradition in the Berlin economy, BDKD accompanies a number of companies of the medium-sized industry which dominates the local economy.
Our firm has assisted them since its inception. Based on its extensive experience in the field of corporate law, BDKD drafts their tailor-made Articles of Association in close cooperation with the promoters of the company or as representative of individual shareholders which naturally are adjusted to the current needs of the company in the further course of its development. BDKD assists companies also in transformations within the meaning of the German Transformation Act. Furthermore, BDKD advises and represents companies and shareholders in intra-company disputes. Such representation can be in or out of Court. In arbitration proceedings, our firm is instructed either as counsel to a party or as arbitrators. BDKD does not only assist companies in their internal affairs but also provides full service to them in their operating activities. This includes first of all advice in the field of individual and collective employment law. Apart from that, the firm provides trade law advice to the company in all national and international contractual relationships.
BDKD advises and represents its clients in all matters of competition law.
This concerns mainly the relevance and admissibility under competition law of adverting and marketing activities and includes representation in Court - inter alia in proceedings for injunctive relief.
BDKD's services also include advice and representations in all matters of intellectual property. In the field of trademark law, BDKD assists its clients in the national and international registration of trademarks. Its intellectual property work comprises issues concerning the admissibility of exploitation of works and the drafting of contracts concerning the use and protection of intellectual property. The comprehensive nature of BDKD's services is reflected by the fact that many of its client relationships have lasted for decades.
