Dispute settlement procedure

In regard to disputes relating to the provision of legal services, Becker Büttner Held PartGmbB (“the company”) is prepared to participate in an alternative dispute settlement procedure pursuant to the Act on Alternative Dispute Resolution in Consumer Matters (Gesetz über die alternative Streitbeilegung in Verbrauchersachen – VSBG).

According to this Act, consumers within the meaning of section 13 German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch) (“consumers”) may – for the purpose of conducting a conciliation procedure – call on the consumer conciliation body (Verbraucherschlichtungsstelle) within the meaning of the Act on the Alternative Dispute Resolution in Consumer Matters if they have previously made a complaint to the company. Consumer complaints are to be addressed to: Becker Büttner Held PartGmbB, Jessica Wiehe, Magazinstraße 15-16, 10179 Berlin, Germany, phone: +49 (0)30 611 28 40-305, jessica.wiehe(at) The contact details of the competent consumer conciliation body are as follows: Schlichtungsstelle der Rechtsanwaltschaft, Neue Grünstraße 17, 10179 Berlin, Germany, phone: +49 (0)30 28 444 17-0, fax: +49 (0)30 28 444 17-12, email: schlichtungsstelle(at), website:

If no more than two months have passed since the claim under dispute was first notified to the company and if the company has during that time neither accepted nor rejected the claim under dispute, the company may request for the conciliation procedure to be suspended for the remainder of the two months. Filing the complaint with the consumer conciliation body suspends the statutory limitation period pursuant to section 204 subsection 1 no. 4 BGB. This does not affect the right of the parties involved to pursue the matter before the courts or to apply for a different procedure.
