Legal advice on purchasing, production and distribution

Purchasing, production and distribution – in short, our clients’ operational activities – are at the centre of the advice we provide.

With more than 50 specialist lawyers, our Commercial team is one of the largest and most experienced practices in Germany. National and international clients benefit from our in-depth industry knowledge and comprehensive legal expertise.

We closely monitor the increasingly globalised markets, together with the opportunities and challenges they present. To do this, we deploy international teams of experts within the worldwide CMS organisation and in particular the CMS Commercial Practice Area Group.

Our long-standing clients include industrial and trading companies from all major sectors of the national and international business world. From the automotive industry to central purchasing organisations, we act on behalf of our clients across all key areas of production and trade.

Up-to-date advice at all times

We are committed to staying abreast of the latest trends and changing conditions. As such, we proactively develop new advisory products for legal areas such as compliance and EU sales law, and for emerging segments such as digital business and e-mobility.

We go beyond the norm

In addition to providing ongoing legal advice as an outsourced legal department and representing our clients in lawsuits, we also offer specialised services, such as customised contract and claim management.

Training courses and practical seminars on legal aspects of purchasing, production and distribution round off our legal advice. These services include tailored inhouse seminars, our Update on Procurement and Distribution roadshow, information events, circulars, brochures and newsletters as well as practical tips.
