Lawyer Marketing

CK - Washington.   Under articles 3 and 12 of the German constitution, Grundgesetz, lawyers may publish revenue figures in their marketing, the Nürnberg Court of Appeals decided on June 22, 2004. As a result, certain restrictions in §6(3) of the statute governing attorneys, Berufsordnung der Rechtsanwälte (BORA), are unconstitutional.

That section of the statute, published at the advobLAWg site, expressly outlaws the use of such figures for marketing purposes, as follows: §6 Werbung... (3) Die Angabe von Erfolgs- und Umsatzzahlen ist unzulässig, i.e. figures pertaining to success or turnover may not be stated [in advertising]. Handakte WebLAWg has additional links.
