GEMS Schindhelm provides comprehensive advice to manufacturing companies and sales partners - in particular sales representatives, authorised dealers and franchisees - on all issues of national and international sales law. The focus of consulting extends from the creation of distribution agreements and the enforcement and/or averting of compensation claims by sales representatives to advising with regard to cartel law or representation in court.

Whether it is e-business or classical sales: We draft your supply and service agreements as well as Standard Terms and Conditions, taking into account special features specific to the industry and designated purpose (e.g. online shop, B2B, etc.). We also check the contracts presented by your business partners for possible tricks and risks and recommend specific amendments to you as required.
