Areas of practice

Mr. Frederic Dachs advises in the areas of corporate law, directors' and officers' liability and compliance as well as general commercial law, both in the drafting of contracts and in litigation.

Mr. Dachs also advises on the development and legally compliant design of new business models.

A further focus of his work is the resolution of shareholder disputes. Together with his clients, he always first tries to find out-of-court and economically reasonable solutions.

In the area of general commercial law, Mr. Dachs drafts and negotiates various contracts, especially for new and innovative business models, e.g. cooperation agreements in the area of social media and contracts for "influencers".
