What is GTCB-law?

Nearly everyone is confronted with GTCB nowadays be that trading with mobile contracts or regarding contracts between companies. GTCB-law speaks about the law of general business terms (Allgemeine Geschäftsbedigungen – AGB). Those are business terms which are pre-formulated and used for a variety of  contracts. One of the affiliates is using them while contracting with his partner. The so formulated business terms can be inoperative when they are verbalised the wrong way. Referring to the principle of transparency the AGB-law regulates the opportunity of inspecting those business rules regarding their content. Therefore the rights and duties of the contract partner have to emerge clearly out of the rules. Further it is prohibited to put the contract partner at a disadvantage in an improper way by using those rules. With our wide experiences on that field we can advise you in an affordable, effective and comprehensive way.
