Law Firm Heringson GLO

Philosophy

In today’s accelerating and intricate world we are beginning to appreciate more and more those peaceful moments and peace of mind – the knowledge that everything is alright with Your family and home, and that Your professional and business related problems are solvable with just a little effort.

However, if work problems turn out to be more complex than usual, they are often brought home, and when the problems become even more severe, it might affect family life and often make it impossible to relax with family or friends. The situation is even more complicated, when the problems are connected to Your home or family. Thus, problems arising from any areas interfere with Your whole everyday life – especially if there is no plain solution. However, there are no unsolvable situations and the solution can be closer than it seems. Judicial regulations and legal relationships inevitably become more and more complex and many have been experienced that either lack of knowledge or just ignorance can amount to very difficult legal maze, where, prima facie, it is hard to find a way out. It is told that You cannot buy a peace of mind. And we do not sell peace of mind. But we know how to solve the situations that steal Your inner peace – or even better: how to prevent problematic situations and minimize Your risks. Satisfaction with You and Your life is an inevitable foundation in terms of Your individual happiness and in turn for Your business success. Life is too short and excellent to waste it on problems. We know how precious and essential is Your peace of mind.

About us

Law Firm Heringson GLO was founded in 2011. Law firm offers our clients services mainly in civil and administrative law, in special cases also in criminal law. All our professionals are specialised on legal proceedings and dispute resolution, which requires an in depth knowledge of the wide spectrum of areas in both civil and administrative law. Our team is competent to protect the best interests of our clients in all proceedings mentioned above. While honorably bearing indigenous principles of a legal profession in a global environment, our keywords are openness, innovativeness and development.

Activities and Services

Heringson GLO offers services for example on several areas, including but not limited following:

    • Law of obligations is one of the main areas of activity of Heringson GLO lawyers, and the resulting practical experience, together with legal preparation, allows us to offer assessments and solutions to a wide range of problems. A good example is a situation where debtors have tried to get rid of their obligations by closing down in one company and setting up another. Thanks to the regulation of the transfer of the company, we have also been able to solve such situations and motivate individuals to pay their debts;

 

    • Business and corporative law. Many companies have chosen Heringson GLO as their day-to-day partner to provide corporate advice to companies on a wide range of issues – often just one phone call away, which does not require a normal appointment and meeting. However, time is a resource that is irreversible. In addition to providing corporate advice and solving day-to-day problems, Heringson GLO is, of course, helpful in the transfer of shares and in disputes between shareholders.

 

    • Labour law. As in any contractual relationship, a precise and clear employment contract that not only meets the minimum requirements of the law, but also unambiguously stipulates the agreements of the parties, helps to prevent problems in employment relations. The lawyers of our law firm will help you to develop a contract based on your exact needs. Of course, it is wise for the employer to consult with Heringson GLO lawyers if the employment contract needs to be terminated for any reason (such as redundancy) – we also help employees assess whether the employer has treated you legally. Unlawful termination of an employment contract may result in claims for compensation by the employee. In addition to the regulation of employment contracts, the lawyers of Heringson GLO also have a number of experiences in representing clients in disputes related to public service.

 

    • Intellectual property, including the trademark law. More than ever in history needs protection intellectual property. It is necessary to protect patents, trademarks, etc. in the classical sense, but also just good ideas for which the aforementioned protection cannot be obtained. Internet-related issues, such as domain names, have become an important breeding ground for intellectual property disputes. For example, our partner Enno Heringson successfully represented a known German sports car manufacturer DR. Ing. H.c. F. Porsche AC in a dispute concerning domain www.porche.ee. He was able to ensure the domain’s www.porsche.ee use to the official dealer requested by the client;

 

    • Real estate – taking account of the importance of financial relations related to real estate, in order to prevent problems, it is wise to contact lawyer as early as possible to further ensure the fulfilment of your wishes. Our lawyers have experience in anticipating problems from the positions of various market participants, carrying out legal audits of real estate objects, if necessary, assisting in drafting the necessary contracts or communicating with state or local government agencies. When problems
      arise, we help solve them in both court and enforcement proceedings. Construction law is also related to the field: planning and subsequent construction is a relatively expensive activity, and if it is decided to do so, the customer’s expectations are always
      high in terms of quality, deadlines, etc. – be it a home, commercial building or other construction. There are additional specific requirements for participants in public works contracts;

 

    • Negotiations are an integral part of the daily work of Heringson GLO’s lawyers – there
      are many reasons to help a lawyer already in the negotiation phase: for us, achieving the best result in negotiations is an objective goal without the subjective emotions that often dominate the parties. At the same time, when setting a goal, we can assess it as
      professionals in interaction with the prevailing legal environment. In other words, we can assess, even before the start of the negotiations, what would be the most objectively reasonable goal to achieve, because sometimes a person may set a goal that is too high – or worse – too low out of ignorance. Once the correct aim has been set, the other partymust also be convinced of its correctness, using arguments based onobjective law as justification. At the same time, it is often sensible to make concessions and compromise, as making a small concession is often cheaper and faster than a long and costly litigation. Even with this choice, we can help you make the right decisions;

 

    • Insolvency proceedings. In the current economic situation, issues related to insolvency proceedings – reorganization, bankruptcy proceedings, debt restructuring proceedings have become especially topical. Bankruptcy law and bankruptcy and liquidation proceedings are one of the most important areas of activity of the law firm Heringson GLO. By combining both legal and economic experience and thinking, we can be doubly useful and effective in solving potential problems. Bankruptcy is not necessarily a dead end for either the debtor or the creditor, but it can also be a solution – not a good solution, but still a solution. Bankruptcies often have resources that, if handled skillfully, can satisfy creditors’ claims, and although this is not common in practice, it is not impossible to rehabilitate a debtor’s business by using the resources found in it wisely;

 

    • Family law. There are two main reasons for recourse to lawyers – firstly, issues relating to children – maintenance, contact arrangements, personal and property custody, and secondly, divorce, which involves the division of joint property. In both cases, Heringson GLO can also help you. The above-mentioned areas are delicate, which require a calm and personal approach, often conciliation of the parties, but unfortunately also the guarantee of the client’s rights in court proceedings. At the same time, Heringson GLO’s lawyers have a wealth of experience that it is often possible to reach reasonable and
      mutually satisfactory agreements through negotiations with the parties much faster and more cheaply than in court proceedings. This is especially true of alimony, because it still goes to the benefit of both parties. However, if no agreement is reached, it is generally guaranteed that the child will be paid a monthly maintenance allowance of at least half the minimum wage from the parent living apart from the child. In addition, the law of succession also has a direct bearing on family law. In the case of several heirs, the lawyer must often play the role of conciliator in this respect and explain the ways in which the situation can best be resolved in the interests of all

 

If the above does not exactly apply to your concern, do not hesitate to contact us. Only by
accurately describing your problem to us can we decide how we can best assist you.

Corporate

Buying and selling a company is potentially one of the most complex and difficult transactions you will ever face. At the same time as continuing to manage the day to day running of your business you will need to be involved in the conduct of sale and purchase negotiations. You may also need to deal with a considerable volume of documentation.  We understand that all of this can be stressful, resulting in a heavy demand on your time.  We have the legal experience to guide you through this process removing some of the burden from your shoulders and giving you advance warning of any legal issues or problems that may arise so that you can think through your response well in advance of the problem arising.

We regularly advise and assist on the following:

  • Buying and selling companies
  • Company formation and company secretarial services
  • Corporate governance and directors’ duties
  • Insolvency issues and wrongful trading
  • Management buy-outs (or buy-ins)
  • Options (including executive management incentive agreements or schemes)
  • Purchase by a company of its own shares
  • Reduction of capital
  • Reorganisations and demergers
  • Shareholder agreements and articles of association
  • Shareholder disputes and unfair prejudice
  • Subscription agreements and investment agreements

Commercial

The life blood of every business is a series of contracts creating legal relations.  Sometimes they are informal and arise out of a conversation or simple exchange of letters.  If the contract is important to your business you might want to make sure it is properly drafted and take advice on what ought to appear in it. 

We can advise and assist you with the following kinds of documents or issues:

  • Agency agreements
  • Competition law
  • Data Protection Act registration and compliance
  • Distribution agreements
  • Intellectual property, trademark assignment and licensing
  • Limitation of liability
  • Retention of title (Romalpa)
  • Standard terms and conditions
  • Supplier and customer contracts

Mediation/Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Mediation is now recognised as one of the fastest and most cost effective methods of settling disputes. 

Going to trial is expensive and stressful, often taking months or years of costly litigation with no guarantee of an outcome that satisfies the parties when you get there. Mediation is often cheaper and quicker, and can be used when opposing parties want to find a workable solution, yet for some reason cannot reach a settlement. 

Most people involved in a dispute would rather reach a settlement than go to trial. The process brings together opposing parties and their advisors and replaces adversarial confrontation with principled negotiation and the object of finding a workable agreement between the parties thereby avoiding recourse to the Courts.

The benefits of reaching an agreement through mediation are often very significant in both financial and personal terms. Mediation is entirely private and can help avoid unwelcome publicity. Any settlement reached does not set a precedent for similar disputes in the future. Parties are now being encouraged into mediation by the Courts which often prevent the parties pursuing litigation.

Jeremy Kleinfeld is accredited as a mediator by CEDR, one of the UK’s leading training and mediation providers. DKLM can offer mediation services in their own right as well as advising clients who are involved in litigation and wish to use mediation as a method of resolving their dispute.

Our experience shows that matters which are mediated stand more than a 75% prospect of being resolved thus avoiding the time, trouble, inconvenience, risk and expense of litigation.

Law Firm
Our law firm, Teichmann International (Schweiz) AG, practices law in Switzerland and provides professional advice and mutual legal assistance in transnational legal matters. Our practice in Switzerland comprises offices in three locations —Zurich, St. Gallen, and Frauenfeld. Our expertise extends to manifold legal fields, which include but are not limited to employment law, family law, inheritance law, and administrative law. We dependably accompany our clients in all life situations because of the wide range of legal subjects we handle. We provide professional, discreet, and personally designed all-around support to our valued clients, whether in the context of legal advice or litigation. This is especially true when it comes to notarial, private, or commercial counsel. Our key priorities are always efficiency, competence, and thoroughness. We view the contentment of our regular clientele as a differentiator of our quality since our objective is to fulfill the highest needs of our clients.

Our law firm conducts litigation in all Swiss courts, with a special emphasis on procedural law, because cases are frequently won or lost on the finer points of procedural law. For example, our firm has previously used its extensive understanding of criminal procedural law to help unfreeze confiscated assets as part of mutual legal aid procedures. Nonetheless, we always prioritize peaceful agreements. As a result, our practice is noted for taking a comprehensive approach to dispute resolution. Our seasoned legal professionals are skilled at predicting issues and devising solutions to avoid going to court. By talking with the opposing parties and participating in mediation and settlement conferences with judges, we look into the possibility of a favorable settlement for our clients. Private clients regularly use our litigation services in a variety of legal areas, including criminal, employment, and family law. We represent corporations from numerous industries in complicated cases and arbitrations both locally and internationally, in addition to private clients. Both civil and criminal litigation are areas of competence for us. Our litigation attorneys handle all aspects of the case, from investigation, pleadings, and discovery to pre-trial, settlement, and appeal procedures.

We furthermore specialize in compliance and criminal law matters. Attorney-at-law and managing partner Dr. Dr. Fabian Teichmann, LL.M. has obtained his PhDs on the topics of circumvention methods of money laundering prevention measures as well as anti-bribery incentives. He has published extensively on white-collar crime topics such as money laundering, corruption, sanctions, terrorism financing, and more. He furthermore teaches compliance courses at universities in Switzerland and abroad.

Our practice in the area does not extend exclusively to Switzerland. On the contrary, our seasoned attorneys are frequently approached by lawyers from around the world to assist in cases regarding incriminated assets. We routinely represent clients from all over Switzerland and abroad in money laundering matters. These cases often involve mutual legal assistance in criminal matters, as crimes are frequently committed outside of the country and (incriminated) assets stored in Switzerland. Our multidisciplinary and multinational team is well-versed in European and international criminal law, especially regarding procedural intricacies.

Moreover, our law firm launches investigations on behalf of corporate bodies, which frequently involve the internal investigation of compliance breaches by executives and employees and the coordination of transnational proceedings. In this, we place great emphasis on reputation protection and internal crisis management. To facilitate effective avoidance of such compliance breaches, our attorneys assist organizations in formulating appropriate codes of conduct, implementing secure and effective avenues for whistleblowing, and administering compliance workshops and trainings. In addition, we assess our clients’ compliance and business models and represent them in approval and licensing actions before the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority. We also help clients with financing rounds and other complicated transactions.

Teichmann International (Schweiz) AG furthermore provides business and entrepreneurial advice to Swiss and international clients in a variety of industries. Our extensive variety of talents and languages distinguishes us from other law firms. Furthermore, our professionals have received great education and have dealt with a variety of complicated transnational and cross-border situations. Our law company has many overseas desks, including CSI, Italy, Germany, and Turkey, that handle complex transnational problems and often cooperate with professionals throughout the world on behalf of international high-net-worth clients.

Christopher Griggs is a self-employed barrister who is part of the barristers’ chambers Barristers.Comm. Barristers.Comm chambers is a group of self-employed barristers working out of a shared office space in the central business district of Wellington, the capital city of Aotearoa New Zealand. Although the individual barristers all work for themselves and run their own separate practices, working in the same barristers’ chambers means that they often collaborate on cases they are running. As all the barristers have different areas of expertise within the law, the chambers environment means that they can all learn from each other, constantly being able to grow their expansive legal knowledge.

Mr Griggs operates his practice in English, German, French, Italian and Māori (the indigenous language of Aotearoa New Zealand). He has clients from many different parts of the world including Europe, America, Australia and the Pacific. Mr Griggs will shortly also be admitted as a barrister in the state of Victoria in Australia in order to expand his ability to work in Australia. He is a longstanding board member of the German-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce, giving him strong links into the German business community.
The scope of Mr Griggs’ work is quite wide. He is a senior officer in the Royal New Zealand Naval Reserve with a strong grip on maritime law, military law and aviation law. He also is an expert in civil and commercial litigation, employment law, international law, public and administrative law, as well as indigenous rights and other human rights.
