Litigation and dispute resolution


Disputes with business partners, shareholders or employees arise in the course of the business activity quite often. In order to solve the dispute the parties may be required to get (more or less) involved in civil proceedings and (sometimes) in proceedings to secure claims or in enforcement proceedings.

In some situations issues can be resolved outside court (e.g. in cases for making an entry in the land and mortgage register). Nevertheless, in all civil proceedings certain rules must be obeyed (especially as far as the formal requirements for the letters submitted to courts or the deadlines for certain actions are concerned). Their violation may have serious consequences.
