External legal department

A considerable number of medium-sized businesses and municipalities currently use Kreutz & Partner as their external legal department.

Everyday business of companies regularly requires legal advice. Often there is some kind of "inhibition threshold" to contact a lawyer for perceived simple questions. This can easily become adverse for companies as often details that are difficult to identify for laymen can be crucial to determine, for example, whether a limitation of liability is valid or not, a tenancy agreement can be terminated early or business activities violate competition rules.

In the long run, profound legal advice, preferably at an early stage, is wiser than "fire-fighting". If you engage us as your external legal department, we will pursue this pre-emptive approach for you.

As a professional external legal department, we advise our clients in all fields of law that are relevant for medium-sized businesses, for instance in Labour Law, Intellectual Property Law, Commercial and Corporate Law, Insolvency Law, Real Estate Law and International Contract Law.

The advantages of an external legal department are obvious:
  • You neither need your own legal staff nor office space or specialized literature.
  • You don't need to worry about competent replacement in cases of illness or vacations.
  • You can rely on a whole team of lawyers who are specialized in a variety of different legal areas.
