I do not use general terms and conditions.

For an initial advice (Erstberatung) towards a consumer I invoice a flat-fee of EUR 190,- plus VAT (19%), thus EUR 226.10.

I regularly use contract clauses stipulation the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany as applicable law. Towards non-consumers I also use choice of court clauses, according to which the exclusive place of jurisdiction for disputes arising from the client relationship is Düsseldorf.
