In early 2018, Dabelstein & Passehl Rechtsanwälte PartGmbB merged with Arnecke Sibeth and now operates under the name Arnecke Sibeth. The team utilises its cross-sectoral expertise to cover a broad spectrum of maritime sector work, from traditional shipping and maritime law matters, such as Dieter Schwampe’s representation of a property insurer in matters pertaining to the collision of a cargo ship with a peer, to restructuring and insolvency issues alongside shipbuilding projects, where cruise industry players form part of the group’s client roster.

  • Priority rental rights in insolvency

    Parties to rental contracts for commercial premises often agree priority rental rights. In practice, this concept is used to cover a whole series of legal structures. These range from fixed options for the tenant to a promise made by the landlord as a business policy that if any additional premises become available, they will be offered to the tenant. In 2010 the Berlin Court of Appeal issued a ruling on such priority rental rights in insolvency; the decision has recently been published.
