Dr. Wolfgang Probandt

Lawyer & Notary

Contracts form the legal basis for our living together, doing business and acting. In contrast to laws and ordinances, they are characterized by consensual cooperation aimed at a common goal. The best contract is not the one with which one party can gain special advantages, but the contract that puts the mutual services in an appropriate relationship to each other and helps to avoid disputes.

My task is to recognize problems that may arise in the future and to regulate them with foresight. This is where an experienced lawyer is needed, either as a representative of his client's interests or as an impartial notary who has to explore the will of all parties involved and formulate it in a contract. To be able to participate in this is a professional challenge and fulfillment for me.

In addition to drawing up contracts, my main focus is on supporting the interests of my clients in enforcing their justified claims arising from contracts with the aim of finding a quick and cost-effective solution.
