Purchase, leasing, loan, work and services contract law
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.
