Our ombudspersons act as the internal whistleblowing authority (internal channel) and can be contacted in confidence. They are subject to the lawyer’s duty of confidentiality and the lawyer’s right to refuse to testify. This and other contractual provisions ensures that the whistleblower’s identity is protected. Information will be passed on to investigating bodies only with the whistleblower’s express consent. Even the act of contacting the ombudsperson itself is protected by confidentiality.
You can contact the ombudspersons by post, by telephone, in writing, or via the ombudsperson’s contact form
The contact form is available in various languages. You can find more information about the ombudspersons via the following link: https://www.ombudsperson-frankfurt.de/en/
