For over 80 years, we have been advising our clients with highest commitment and efficiency. We have grown into a business consulting law firm with international contacts, due to the fact that we think innovatively and always take the concerns of our clients seriously. By means of competence, creativity and care, we find the best solutions for our clients and their interests.

The entrepreneurs advice is our focus. Our lawyers therefore provide specializations in all legal disciplines relevant for economic consulting. In Distribution Law, Leinen & Derichs provides highest expertise and experience for clients. We assist and advise national and international companies in the area of design and implementation of sales systems, for example by usage of commercial agents, dealers or franchisees. Our advice encompasses the right selection of the distribution system as well as the design of the respective distribution agreements (commercial agent agreement, dealer agreement and franchise agreement). In addition, we are acting as representatives on behalf of our clients in court proceedings, i. a. in the event of commission and compensation disputes. Moreover, we advise our clients in the area of EU-antitrust law, wherein we can provide long-time experience as well.

We are a member of the EEIG "International Trade Lawyers", based in Brussels (European Economic Interest Group). Through this membership, we have access to a network of highly specialized lawyers and attorneys in the most important European states and the USA. Thus, we are able to quickly and efficiently assess your claims outside Germany as well. In addition, the possibilities and dangers of an agreement on the applicability of international law in trade and distribution agreements can be evaluated and solutions developed in cooperation with our network partners.
