EDITORIAL: Making life easier!

Professional athletes have coaches. Company bosses have coaches. But not the top lawyers?

Anyone who performs at a high level is under enormous pressure to perform in a high-performance law firm (in English these are not called High Performance Work Systems for nothing). “In addition” he also has to cultivate his social environment and manage employees, address customers and seek new business opportunities. And these are the ones who don’t have coaches? When we launched the “AdvoCoach” brand 19 years ago, we were often told that lawyers “don’t need” them.

Frankly speaking: The insolvency of the insolvency administrators

Since 2014, the insolvency administrator scene has had a rather lukewarm market. The few major proceedings are often not followed by insolvency, but rather, already in the self-interest of the management, are reorganized in the self-administration or even earlier. This is a problem for an insolvency administration based on a mixed calculation of large and

Quite right: Fines for cartel proceedings included in the price?

Are fines in cartel proceedings included in the costs of influencing the market priced in by the companies from the outset? And does the legal department know about this?  This question could be asked if one reads the list of fines imposed by the European Union for breaches of competition law. The most recent example
