Frederik Born was formerly a member of Bird & Bird’s commercial practice group, based in the Düsseldorf office.

In that capacity, he advised German and international clients on their national and cross-border investments, and on distributional, franchising, contractual and corporate issues, including standard contracts (B2B, B2C, B2P). He gave advice on the structuring and restructuring of new and existing distribution systems; he drafted and negotiated high-volume project contracts; and, if necessary, advanced his clients’ interests before state and arbitration courts.
