Raupach & Wollert-Elmendorff provide legal advice and (forensic) representation for both public bodies (federal, land (state), municipal/regional) and private companies of varying sizes. In view of the increasing density of regulation in many areas of business life, public law plays an ever greater role. This is a dynamic field of law which is constantly developing in response to changes in technical standards and the political environment.
Advisory services deserving particular mention relate to cooperative models between public bodies and private companies, especially the so-called 'Public Private Partnership' (PPP).
In the field of public procurement law we regularly act both for public contractors and for the tendering parties (including verification procedures). This facilitates highly effective legal advice for the individual client by means of legal assessment from varying standpoints.
We provide ongoing advice for clients in all product related aspects of the food industry, ranging from the packaging to the content. This includes providing advice on legal labelling and packaging requirements, as well as representing parties in issues of food safety.
One element of our advisory approach is to avoid lengthy administrative legal proceedings where possible. Basically we endeavour well before any potential administrative law dispute to reach solutions in cooperation with the public authority. In our experience this generally provides optimum support in furthering the interests of the client.
