BANKING AND CAPITAL MARKET LAW

In court and arbitration proceedings, Dr. Andreas Sasdi regularly represents the parties responsible for the prospectus (issuing houses, offerers and founding shareholders. etc.) and the intermediary financial service providers (independent agents, financial service institutes, and investment advisors), which in case of doubt are held responsible if the yields set out in the prospectus are not realized even is the threat of a total loss of the investments made by the investor. In 2018 alone, Dr. Sasdi supported his clients in approximately 200 civil proceedings and in a large number of model case proceedings. The focus of the proceedings usually is on alleged mistakes in the prospectus, violation of “ad hic” notification obligations, or the acting representative bodies exceeding their authority. In the case of financial service providers, proceedings usually focus on the question of the extent to which advice or mediation violated disclosure obligations and/or whether clients had not been advised in a manner appropriate for investors and/or investments. 

In addition to his forensic activities, which cover the majority of his activities, Dr. Sasdi also advises his clients conceptually and with regard to structure, creation, and preparation of financial instruments, supports and represents his clients in regulatory proceedings before the BaFin, and also offers his clients (mostly required by banks) the monitoring of legal regulations ("compliance"). Dr. Sasdi also advises independent agents and financial services institutions with regard to the drafting and revision of their advisory protocols and their advisory and agency agreements.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW

Dr Andreas Sasdi advises his clients on the development of brand strategies and the establishment of a brand portfolio. In addition, he takes care of all services, from the search of a trademark to the registration and monitoring of a trademark to its defence and enforcement against third parties. He registers German trademarks, union trademarks and IR trademarks for his clients, ensures priority abroad and coordinates trademark applications outside Europe, using his global network of highly specialized trademark consultants. He also manages his clients' trademark portfolios with the German Patent and Trademark Office, the Office of the European Union for Intellectual Property (EUIPO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and ensures their renewal.

At the request of his clients, in the event of infringements of industrial property rights, Dr Sasdi issues warning letters to any trademark infringers and, if necessary, enforces the client's claims for injunctive relief by way of an injunction and/or in the main proceedings. He also represents his clients in opposition and cancellation proceedings and defends his clients' trademark rights before the DPMA, EUIPO and WIPO.
