Service Description

An arbitration board has been set up at the chambers of industry and commerce to settle competition disputes.

The conciliation board for the settlement of competition disputes is a forum set up by the Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHK) to reach an amicable settlement between the parties in competition disputes.
It meets with an experienced competition lawyer and two business people together with the opposing parties. The facts of the case are discussed in a round table discussion moderated by the chairman. The different assessments are debated and the relevant statutory provisions and case law are discussed.
Unlike in court, this takes place relatively informally and not in public.
The meeting usually lasts 30 to 60 minutes. At the end of the hearing, the conciliation board submits a settlement proposal, which the parties can agree to.
