The publishing house C.H.BECK, one of the largest and most traditional German publishing houses in the legal field, has appointed Dr. Nicolas Schüngel, lawyer with LEBUHN & PUCHTA since 2019, to its circle of commentators. Nicolas comments on the provisions on general average (Sections 588 to 595 Commercial Code) in the renowned beck-online.Großkommentar on transport law. Nicolas, who already published his dissertation on general average in 2019, is an expert in the law of general average under the German Commercial Code, the Inland Shipping Act and the York-Antwerp Rules (YAR). He also advises on alternative solutions to minimise the risk of long, complex and costly proceedings. The commentary in the beck-online.Großkommentar is now available at beck-online.
Dr. Klaus Ramming – author of numerous publications on transport law, of the Großkommentar zum Seenhandelsrecht (commentary on maritime law) as well as a co-editor of the magazine “Recht der Transportwirtschaft” (RdTW) – has also authored parts of the beck-online.Großkommentar (inter alia Sections 452 to 452d German Commercial Code; German Freight Forwarders’ Standard Terms and Conditions 2017 – ADSp 2017), so that LEBUHN & PUCHTA is represented by two of their lawyers as commentators in this standard reference work on transport law.
