Summary Offense Actions.

Apart from the regulations laid down in the law on summary offenses (OWiG), summary offense law is also part of numerous articles of public law. Summary offense law applies to legal violations such as:

  • Traffic violations (violations of the German Road Traffic Act (StVO), the criminal code, etc.)
  • Violations of social law (e.g., company directors’ obligation to register their business with job centers)
  • Shipping violations (e.g., inland waterway shipping law)
  • Violations of transport security requirements for freight
  • Violations of environmental regulations (pollution violations, etc.)
  • Violations relating to the restaurant and bar trade (including neighborhood rights)
  • Violations by commercial service providers (snow-clearing and gritting, breaches of the peace and disruptions to public order)
  • Violations relating to garbage collection services
  • Violations relating to the annulment of service contracts

Our basic approach to proceedings stemming from such violations is structured in the same way as our approach to criminal proceedings. We represent road users, company directors, employees and restaurant owners as well as commercial service providers.
