Commercial law is the specialized law of merchants. Therefore, an in-depth knowledge of the German Commercial Code and, in case of international relations, of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is necessary. Securities law, banking law, capital market law and stock exchange law are all part of commercial law as well.
Commercial law is characterized by a multitude of customs through general terms and conditions (AGB, INCOTERMS). Business transactions involve a variety of preliminary agreements (letter of intent, memorandum of understanding, term sheet, etc.) and non-disclosure agreements (NDA) until the actual main transaction takes place. In these intermediate steps there already lie numerous liability traps, which we can warn you about.
