Conduct of Case
Representing our clients
An out of court, amicable solution of legal disputes is, in most cases, the most efficient and economic way to solve clashes of interest. However, not all conflicts can be dissolved with mutual consent. In these cases, a conduct of case – law suit – is inescapable.
ProJustitia law offices represent their clients at court to assert the clients´ interest best. Very complex law suits could also require a team of experts provided by us. The ProJustitia lawyers give advice after they thoroughly examined the legal position by evaluating chances and risks of the law suit, elucidation of cost factors, preparation best possible of conduct of case, definition of the law suit aim and drafting of the law suit strategy.
Law suit success
In case of successful law suits, the judge’s conviction has a positive result concerning your aims. Actually, many cases end up with a composition though. During consultations, your lawyer from ProJustitia will try to define a good goal to aim at, propose a tactic and – presuming your accordance – lead the upcoming discussions with your opponent.
Exoneration of clients
When representing the clients´ interests, the ProJustitia law offices exonerate you as much as desired and possible from the direct conduct of the judicial contention. ProJustitia law offices represent their customers in all areas of commercial law as well as all other areas. The legal venue is of no interest to us as ProJustitia thinks global and acts local.
You can address all juridicial problems to our affiliated members. If required, they set up a written legal opin-ion with respect to the guideline: who – against whom/what – what from. Your ProJustitia lawyer begins wiht detecting the facts of the case, names the parties and couches the facts in question. With this, he detects the targets of the principal, he is then going to evaluated in a juridicial way. Sometimes, the point of law has to be develop and interpreted by the lawyer. After formulating the assumption, he needs to search for the legal basis in your case. Finally, the lawyer needs to evaluate potential methods of resolution for the relevant point of law.
Mediation is a way of conflict resolution. Focus is on the mediation of cases by an impartial third party, the mediator. The mediator is not going to pass a sentence, however, he aims at bringing the two parties back to one table and into discussion. Generally, the mediator creates a new communication structure that enables both litigants to work on their own individual, sustainable and amicable solution.
The mediation process comprises these Stepps: An introduction in which organizational questions will be clarified, standpoints of the ligitants, elucidation of the conflict, creation of possible solutions, agreement about the best solution for both parties, implementation, feedback phase – in which the parties can express contingent and subsequent improvements, and perhaps a phase of amendment. Your ProJustitia lawyer is a skillful negotiator.

If the result of this conversation is positive, your lawyer files a draft action with Allianz.
This will be checked in advance by the Allianz Lawsuit Funding. Should a positive result be achieved, a lawsuit funding contract will be sent by the Allianz to your lawyer. A contract signed by him will be closely reviewed and double checked by Allianz terminatory.
