WINHELLER is your expert for all franchise issues in Germany and the EU. Whether you are franchising a proven business concept, want to franchise a business from someone else or are managing an existing franchise, WINHELLER can provide you with the legal and tax advice you need to ensure that your franchise is a success. 

General Terms & Conditions

Because of their brevity, Terms and Conditions (“T&C”) are sometimes overlooked. However, T&C are an important part of any business interaction. For example, use of a company’s website will be governed by applicable T&C; and may, therefore, have consequences for future transactions. T&C may also include disclaimer statements and may also be designated Terms of Service (ToS).


E-commerce has grown tremendously over the past 15 years, and so too have the rules. Thus, anyone seeking to enter the German market to run an IT company, an e-commerce website or an online business should ensure that their business complies with all relevant German laws, including privacy, competition and security laws.

International Sales Contract

Sales contracts and international sales contracts are a fundamental part of any significant business transaction. Using our extensive legal and practical experience, we can examine a proposed international sales contract (whether it is a template or part of a one-off transaction) to ensure protection of your interests and compliance with German law.
