Proceedings on Appeal


We regularly take on the defense in appeal cases based on evidence and appeal cases based on questions of law, including and in particular criminal matters, with which we were not involved in the main proceedings in the first instance. Regardless of the statistically low rate of success and the strict legal requirements imposed by the German Federal High Court of Justice on the admissibility of procedural irregularities, we have had success in numerous appeals on questions of law before the higher courts.  

Moreover, we provide advice on the prospects for success on retrials and clemency proceedings and file the required applications according to the respective chances for success.
