Office of Conciliation
Greenfort is a state certified office of conciliation. We offer conciliation for every kind of dispute under civil law. Applications can be made without complication, in accordance with our Rules of Conciliation, by e-mail . Under German law (§ 204 para. 1 no. 4 of the German Civil Code) conciliation suspends the statutory time limits set for claims and civil litigation.
Conciliation is usually a more cost effective alternative to enforcement proceedings through a law court. Compared to litigation, conciliation is significantly more effective, faster, and lower in cost. Moreover, the conciliation does not have to be strictly limited to the original points the of dispute. Therefore, a broad spectrum of solutions can be opened which are geared to the real interests of the disputing parties. The proceedings are not public and, therefore, confidential.
The Ministry of Justice of Hesse has authorized Greenfort to issue the enforcement order according to § 797a of the German Code of Civil Procedure. The office of conciliation can therefore decide enforceable settlements. Our cociliators are distinguished for their skills in negotiating and solving conflict.
