Administrative Law and Constitutional Law
Administrative law (such as drug law, trade and industrial plant law, data protection law, e‑commerce law, food law, cartel law, social security law, public procurement law etc.), increasingly develops to a steeply rising complex field of law. Therefore, it often becomes difficult to determine the competent authority or to prepare the accurate applications. We assist our clients with competent support to carry out their requests efficiently, productively and accurately before the competent authority.
The reform of administrative jurisdiction, which entered into force at the turn of the years 2013/2014, constitutes a major challenge. On January 1, 2014, two newly established federal administrative courts (“Bundesverwaltungsgerichte”) and nine regional administrative courts (“Landesverwaltungsgerichte”) commenced their activities and replaced more than 120 abandoned special authorities.
The provisions of an appeal before the Higher Administrative Court (“Verwaltungsgerichtshof”) have also been amended comprehensively. The new appeal “Revision” may only be raised in compliance with particular requirements. We will continue to assisst our clients with professional support in order to achieve their goals.
We campaign for our clients in order to defend their constitutionally guaranteed rights – in case of need before the highest courts – and support them combating against unconstitutional laws or regulations before the Higher Constitutional Court (“Verfassungsgerichtshof”).
