Legal notice, information according to DL-InfoV

Information according to the Ordinance on Information Obligations for Service Providers and § 5 TMG

The advice we offer is provided by lawyers and tax consultants who have been awarded the professional title in the Federal Republic of Germany. The professionals of the Cologne office are registered with the Cologne Bar Association, Riehler Str. 30, 50668 Cologne (Tel. 0221 9730100, Fax. 0221 97301050, e-mail: kontakt@rak-koeln.de) or the Chamber of Tax Consultants Cologne, Gereonstr. 34-36, 50670 Cologne (Tel. 0221 336430, Fax. 0221 3364343, e-mail: mail@stbk-koeln.de). The respective chamber is also the competent supervisory authority. The following professional regulations apply to our activities:

Professional regulations

– Federal Lawyers’ Act (BRAO)
– Professional code of conduct (BORA)
– Specialist attorney regulations (FAO)
– Law on the remuneration of lawyers (RVG)
– Rules of Professional Conduct of Lawyers in the European Community (CCBE)
– Tax Consultancy Act (StBerG)
– Ordinance on the implementation of the regulations on tax consultants, tax agents and tax consulting companies (DVStB)

The professional regulations can be found on the websites of the Federal Chamber of Lawyers (www.brak.de) and the Federal Chamber of Tax Consultants (www.bstbk.de) under the heading “Berufsrecht”.
The representation of conflicting interests is prohibited for lawyers due to professional regulations (§ 43a para. 4 BRAO). Before accepting a mandate, we therefore always check whether there is a conflict of interest.

Professional liability insurance

The professional liability insurance policies are with Zurich Insurance plc, Branch for Germany, Platz der Einheit 2, D-60327 Frankfurt am Main. The geographical scope of the insurance cover includes activities in the member states of the European Union and thus at least meets the requirements of § 51 Federal Lawyers’ Act (BRAO), § 67 Tax Consultancy Act (StBerG), §§ 51 ff. Regulation for the implementation of the regulations on tax consultants, tax agents and tax consulting companies (DVStB)).

The insurance cover does not apply to liability claims in connection with advice and occupation with non-European law and activities of lawyers before non-European courts.

The information according to §2 DL-InfoV is also available in the offices.

The European Commission provides an online dispute resolution platform which can be found at ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. OVH is neither obliged nor willing to participate in any dispute resolution procedure on this platform.
