Lawyers and advertisement

These pages intend to give information about our activity to persons, firms and associations which are searching a suitable law firm. After the fundamental decision of the BVerfG of 14.07.1987 a general advertising prohibition for lawyers in Germany does not exist. The lawyer/attorney is in accordance with 1 BRAO an independent organ of jurisprudence and practices a free occupation and no trade ( 2 BRAO). With these principles it cannot be agreed that the attorney advertises like a tradesman. A legal basis for interventions into the liberty of the practise of the profession is given in 43b BRAO. The problem of the advertising prohibition concretizes on the question, which limits 43b BRAO sets to the right to advertise. Based on Art. 12 I GG 43b BRAO the advertising prohibition limits to the prohibition of "misleading advertisement" and "direct advertisement for practice", which covers comparison with colleagues. These principles apply also to the Internet within the Federal Republic of Germany.
