    Quality LawNRW:
    Efficient. Cost-effective. Competent.

    Today, businesses and individuals rely on courts of law that can meet the demand for high-quality, efficient and fast adjudication, even in the most specialised matters. In North Rhine-Westphalia, we respond to this by being the first German state to concentrate legal cases that involve industry, commerce and cutting-edge technologies in a few courts as expertise hubs.
