My name is Dr Reiner Fuellmich and I am originally from the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. I live and work in Göttingen and California and am admitted to the bar in Germany and California.
I have been practicing as a litigator for over 25 years. In the beginning, the focus was on medical malpractice cases, but then came more and more cases in which I was allowed to represent injured parties of corporations and banks – especially those who were damaged by the so-called „junk real estate cases“ by Deutsche Bank.
In 2004, I even filed a 45-page criminal complaint against the then chairman of the 11th BGH senate on behalf of an aggrieved party. This senate – in contrast to the 9th senate – also “banking senate“ – had made conspicuously bank-friendly and customer-damaging judgements. This criminal complaint was a unique action by a lawyer in German judicial history until then.
These cases made it increasingly clear to me that there is a lot wrong with the German justice system – and that “being right“ and “being proven right“ often do not go hand in hand.
