Fürstenow Law Office sees itself as a law firm for entrepreneurs, especially when it comes to drafting contracts, contract negotiations, contract execution and procedural representation.
Contract law for companies

Contract law for entrepreneurs
There is a large number of company agreements, ranging from the articles of association (articles of association, participation agreements, capital increases) to those agreements with which a company earns its money, such as licence agreements, distribution agreements, contracts for work and services, consultancy agreements, etc.
The course for economic value retention of a contract can already be set during contract initiation and contract negotiations. In particular, young inexperienced companies who negotiate contracts with a large and perhaps well‐known contractual partner are tempted to sign a contract without examining it for fear of losing the contractual partner through negotiation or outright respect for the partner. Experience shows, however, that it is always worthwhile to negotiate contracts, even if the other party may have a market capitalization in the double‐digit billion range.
For the sustainability of economic success, it is important that contracts, especially those with a long term, such as license agreements and distribution agreements, are forward‐looking and that conflict potential is avoided, or at least reduced as far as possible.
Fürstenow Law Office offers representation not only in the drafting of contracts, but also in the execution of contracts, so that the contract is fulfilled as agreed according to the contract. In cases of conflict, Attorney Fürstenow advises and represents the clients in order to avoid their economic damage. Attorney Fürstenow also represents his clients in court.
In the case of defaulting contractual partners, a strict debt collection regime is often sufficient. Unfortunately, the business practice of many companies is to only pay when they insist on it or when this involves costs that the defaulting payer has to bear.
Corporate Law and Commercial Law
Attorney Fürstenow assists companies in the establishment and finding of the right legal form. Company founders are faced with the decision on which legal form should be chosen for the new company. The choice is not limited to the business purpose alone. Rather, social and tax aspects have to be taken into account when developing the overall concept.
Founders are offered comprehensive advice, especially on the choice of the right legal form, as well as the drafting of various necessary partnership agreements.
Further corporate law issues are, for example:
- Shareholder disputes, termination, exclusion of shareholders;
- Managing directors (dismissal, termination, liability);
- Non‐competition clause.
Commercial Law/Distribution Law
Commercial law is the special private law that aims at accelerated business transactions. In contrast to consumers, businessmen are less in need of protection as business people. European guidelines as well as the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods are of international importance.
In the field of commercial law, Attorney Fürstenow offers comprehensive advice and support, especially for start‐up companies.
This also includes the development and expansion of sales systems by reviewing and designing sales processes and designing and optimizing sales contracts.
Especially for founders and start‐ups
Attorney Fürstenow offers both entrepreneur and start‐up companies comprehensive legal advice on the relevant issues, especially in the areas of company law (correct legal form, company agreements) and financing (which financing options are possible).
A comprehensive legal review helps to avoid errors and extra costs, especially in the initial stages.
Contract law for consumers
Attorney Fürstenow also offers consumers advice on a wide range of contracts, particularly in the areas of banking law and investment law.
