Professional liability insurance:
The professional liability insurance is with ERGO Versicherung AG, Victoriaplatz 1, 40198 Düsseldorf. There is worldwide insurance cover insofar as the insured activities are not carried out through law firms and offices outside Germany. The office in Poland is an exception to this rule; item 4.1 of Annex F 2009 does not apply here. Partnership companies with limited professional liability are obliged by the Federal Lawyers' Act to maintain a professional liability insurance with a minimum insurance sum of EUR 2.5 million for each insured event. Under the Federal Lawyers' Act, lawyers are obliged to maintain a professional liability insurance with a minimum insurance sum of EUR 250,000. Details can be found in § 51 and § 51a BRAO. Tax consultants are obliged to maintain professional liability insurance on the basis of the Tax Consultant Regulations (Part 2 of the Tax Consultant Act).
The following professional regulations apply to lawyers:
- Federal Lawyers' Act (BRAO)
- Professional code of conduct for lawyers (BORA)
- Specialist attorney regulations (FAO)
- Lawyers' Fees Act (RVG)
- Rules of Professional Conduct of Lawyers in the European Union (CCBE)
The professional regulations of the lawyers can be viewed and called up on the homepage of the Federal Chamber of Lawyers (www.brak.de) under the heading "Berufsrecht".

- Tax Consultancy Act (StBerG)

The professional regulations of tax consultants can be viewed and called up on the homepage of the Federal Chamber of Tax Consultants (www.bstbk.de).
Conflict of interests:
The representation of conflicting interests is prohibited for lawyers due to professional regulations (§ 43a Abs. 4 BRAO). Before accepting a mandate, a special computer program (DATEV Phantasy) is therefore always used to check whether a conflict of interest exists.
Out-of-court settlement of disputes (at the same time general duty to inform according to § 36 VSBG):
The Federal Chamber of Lawyers in Berlin has set up an arbitration board for disputes relating to property law arising from a mandate relationship up to an amount in dispute of € 15,000. The Federal Chamber of Lawyers provides information on how to apply.
Alternatively, the respective arbitration board of the local bar association can mediate on request in disputes between lawyers and their clients.
