Areas of practice

Dr Hormes primarily advises our clients in the area of contract logistics, in particular, on complex logistics outsourcing projects as well as on intralogistics projects (innovation/ technology), including corresponding service and maintenance contracts. Her advisory services cover the entire project cycle (drafting contractual cornerstones, drafting or revising (intra-)logistics contracts, legal revision of specific annexes, contract amendments and addenda, support on disputes between the contracting parties during the course of the project and in day-to-day business). Dr Hormes regularly advises on large-volume projects in the multi-digit million range with a contract term of several years but is just as familiar with handling smaller projects.

Dr Hormes also deals with transport law and classic civil law issues such as purchase contracts, contracts for work and services. She represents our clients in judicial and extrajudicial disputes.
