Liability law

Our liability lawyers protect clients’ interests in cases involving damage, loss or injury. Examples are breach of contract, defective products, personal injury, traffic accidents, contract disputes, and claims.

In this legal practice area, we draft contracts and give advice to clients on potential liability. We negotiate with parties such as your customer or an insurance company. We contribute ideas about the furnishing of proof, we conduct proceedings and, if necessary, prepare calculations of the loss.

For entrepreneurs, liability is often a matter of risk management: which risks does your company run and how can they be mitigated sensibly. We also regularly give advice to businesses facing liability claims.

A specific area of our expertise in liability law is personal injury. That is why we frequently assist private individuals following traffic accidents, workplace incidents, and medical injury.


Liability law can be divided into the following three subareas:

  • liability for entrepreneurs
  • liability for private individuals
  • personal injury
