Purchase, leasing, loan, work and services contract law
Leasing is still on the rise with two types to be distinguished:
On the one hand, there’s operative leasing which means the temporary transfer of the leasing object from a producer to the leasing receiver, often through a leasing company as the middleman.
On the other hand, there’s finance leasing where the object is transferred for an indefinite period. Mostly, the leasing receiver gets the option to extend the contract for any desired timeframe or to purchase the object under offsetting of the already paid lease.

Trouble with craftsmen? The client doesn’t pay
In a work or service contract the contractor owes the delivery of a value, meaning the creation of a certain success. In exchange, he/she gets the agreed payment. The value can be an object or an immaterial work product (e.g. computer program). Therefore, the area of focus is not on a service provision but the creation of a work piece.
Legal advice is essential in case of deficiencies but also when a customer doesn’t pay. No matter if we’re talking about construction work, repairs, manual artisan work (e.g. furniture production, installation of technical systems), transport services (e.g. taxi ride), creation of art pieces (e.g. paintings or sculptures) or the preparation of expert reports and plans – it’s crucial that your rights are claimed correctly! Often, an extrajudicial settlement is possible but we’re also representing you competently when a legal dispute is unavoidable.
The work and services contract has to be distinguished especially from the employment and the purchase contract. In special cases, there is also overlap with construction contracts, contracts for labor and materials, transportation contracts, travel contracts, agency agreements, engineering contract and other mixed contracts. The correct legal classification is essential for exercising your rights as completely as possible.
