Highly experienced judges with outstanding qualifications and expertise in commercial law sit in both the Stuttgart Commercial Court and the Mannheim Commercial Court. They will handle your legal dispute with skill, commitment and care.
Every judge is able to conduct the proceedings in English if you so choose. Documents in English which are the object of the dispute can be used in the proceedings. As such, it is not necessary to obtain extensive translations of contractual documents or engage the services of interpreters.
The court divisions are staffed in such a way that proceedings can normally be conducted and arbitrated by three judges. Pooling the experience and knowledge of three judges ensures that decisions are of high quality.
Additionally, you can decide whether you would like your case to be heard in the civil division with three regular judges or in the division for commercial matters with one regular judge and two commercial judges. The civil division might be advisable if, for example, your case mainly involves highly complex legal matters. The division for commercial matters can be ideal if your case mainly requires expert commercial knowledge and experience regardless of the legal issues or if it demands a combination of legal and industry-specific expertise. The honorary commercial judges normally have years of entrepreneurial experience as managing directors, executives or freelancers in a wide range of industries.
Even extensive proceedings can be brought to a professional conclusion within a manageable period of time.
The technical equipment in the courtrooms and the support staff mean that minutes of the verbal proceedings, video-conferences and video testimonies of witnesses and experts can be taken if necessary.
