|Trade and Industry Law|
Economic order is based on the freedom of trade. This means that everyone has access to commercial activities. This basic right however, does not exclude the possibility that legal restrictions may arise in regard to the practice of trade. A range of obligations are imposed on traders.
If you would like to register a company, have been denied a company or already run a company, and you have legal questions concerning this, do not hesitate to get advice from an experienced lawyer at GRP Rainer.
Commercial law in the strict sense poses specific requirements for traders. In general, they are required to become a member of, for example, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Chamber of Crafts, Chamber of Trade, or similar. Often, there are also specific requirements regarding “reliability” that traders must meet. Our lawyers will explain to you fully your rights and responsibilities as a trader.
The relevant statutes of trade law are extensive and found in various laws such as the Gewerbeordnung, the Gaststättengesetz and the Ladenschlussgesetz. However, there are also numerous labour laws of a regulatory nature, such as Arbeitsschutzgesetz. The risks posed by commercial sites, commercial law in a broader sense, are today mainly absorbed by environmental law. The most important statute is the Bundesimmisionsschutzgesetz.
