Cooperation partners

We maintain a close network of cooperation partners nationwide and internationally.

Complaints and dispute settlement procedures

If you are dissatisfied with our services, please contact us. We take every complaint seriously and strive to meet your requirements (again). Usuallz, we will find a solution in a joint discussion on how we can improve our cooperation and perform to your satisfaction again. Your contact person for complaints of any kind is our managing director Stefan Winheller (e-mail: s.winheller@winheller.com). 

Upon request, there is also the possibility of out-of-court dispute resolution at the above-mentioned regional chambers. In addition, you can also contact the arbitration board of the legal profession, Neue Grünstrasse 17, 10179 Berlin, www.s-d-r.org. Unlike the first-mentioned conciliation bodies, the last-mentioned conciliation body of the legal profession is a recognized conciliation body in accordance with the Act on Alternative Dispute Resolution in Consumer Matters (VSBG). 

The European Commission also provides a platform for online dispute resolution (OS), which you can find at ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.

Duration of the cooperation/right of termination

We build on a trusting cooperation with you. Apart from individual agreements that provide for specific contract periods, you are entitled to terminate the mandate at any time. However, a termination does not necessarily mean that our claim to remuneration ceases to exist. Therefore, please contact us before you terminate (see above "Complaints and dispute resolution procedures"). We may be able to find a better solution than abruptly terminating the cooperation.
