Vita:

Dirk Schmitz primarily assists corporate and tax law mandates. Various companies are advised on company transformations, in addition to aspects of specific tax law.

He is also a renowned specialist in the field of liability and right of recourse. On the recommendation of well-known insurers, he represents in particular accountants, tax consultants, lawyers, notaries, insolvency administrators and corporate institutions in liability cases. For failed business transactions, insolvencies and failed lawsuits, claiming against consultants, corporate governance and the administrators is the norm. Due to the differentiated individual case law and the high risks, insurers rely specifically on bock legal, and especially also on Dirk Schmitz.

In 2012, as in previous years, he was one of the “frequently recommended” lawyers of the firm, according to JUVE, in the field of litigation and consulting on insurance law (JUVE Handbook German Commercial Law Firms 2012/2013). The yearbook “Kanzleien in Deutschland 2012” identifies Dirk Schmitz as “very established” in the field of liability and insurance law.
