Innovation & Tradition - that's CBH!
We focus on five strategic areas of commercial and administrative law.
Within each of our core areas, we offer the entire spectrum of legal services.

Our Practice Areas

As one of the leading German commercial law firms, we advise a large number of nationally and internationally active companies, public corporations,
trade associations, foundations, major infrastructure projects and individuals in various specialist areas. Our practice covers five strategic areas of commercial law.

Business & Finance

Your company is developing. Every day. You decide: expand, merge, restructure, go public. That is your interest: lawyers who design your rights instead of having to take objections. We support you in your daily business decisions as well as in financing issues. We do not understand corporate and banking law statically, but use the law – for your success.

Should it be necessary, we will of course assist you and your company in disputes, whether before a state court or an arbitral tribunal.

As a bank, we support you with regulatory issues and outsourcing measures. We draft your contracts quickly and efficiently and assert your claims in court.

Labor & Employment Law

You need smooth processes and perfect solutions in all matters of labour law. We accompany you quickly and efficiently in your daily HR work as well as in strategic realignment through restructuring, and also take charge of enforcing your decisions in court.

This requires not only profound legal knowledge, but also distinctive entrepreneurial thinking and tactical skills based on practical know-how, an understanding of your business environment and the necessary sensitivity. We bring all this with us. In short, we understand your business and want to develop it further with you.

Our core business also includes advising and representing board members, managing directors and managers in the establishment and termination of their employment contracts.

IP, Media & IT

With around 20 professionals specialising in intellectual property law, CBH covers the entire spectrum of intellectual property protection, competition law, employee invention law as well as media and IT law. Your intellectual property, your trademarks, your ideas and your creative imagination are your most important assets. You have invested time, money and creativity in the development of new products, trademarks, IT solutions and designs. The protection of your intellectual property and know-how is our concern.

Our highly specialized practice group “Intellectual Property, Media and IT” helps you to acquire, maintain and defend the necessary rights. In addition, we advise you in an experienced and competent manner on the optimal drafting of exploitation contracts and the legal implementation of innovative business concepts.

In the area of media, information technology, trademark, competition, design and copyright law, we are your strong partner in all legal matters and in the enforcement or defence of your rights in court.

Construction & Real Estate

You finance or develop projects and bring them to market. You create infrastructure or build industrial plants. Land plots, commercial properties or residential buildings are your capital, which you have to use profitably.

We consistently represent your interests from the legal structuring of your project to the development of the building law to the turnkey property and beyond. We accompany you in the conclusion of rental agreements or in the exit, be it a share or asset deal. We support you in asset management and in the operation of your real estate.

Administration & economy

As an entrepreneur or citizen, you want to be efficiently represented in public administration. As a public administration you want the advice of experienced specialists.

For more than 50 years we have been in close contact with cities and municipalities, authorities, ministries and politicians. They know us as cooperative lobbyists, who work in a professional and solution-oriented manner.
