A relocation to Germany would result in the change in the legal system that the company currentlyfollows. Germany follows the Civil Law legal system with the Germanic law (derivedfrom Roman Law) which is codified. The Civil Law system has a laid out set ofcodes that mention the procedure, process and punishment for a case.
Under the Civil Law System, cases are decided not by the jury, but by a practiced judge. Common Law, on the other hand, is by and large uncodified,i.e. the main guidelines are often based on tradition and customs, and previousrulings. This implies there is no extensive accumulation of legitimatestandards and statues. Although Common law depends on some statues, it isusually based on precedent, a precedent is a case that establishes a rule. Thisrule is then utilized by the court when deciding later cases.English Common Law is found in England and Wales, nearly every country that wascolonized by Great Britain follows the CommonLaw system with their own subcategories.
Common Law has its advantages. Unlike Civillaw, Common Law follows a form of consistency, yet it has room for flexibilityand change. Existing Precedents can be confronted, and revised and replaced bynew Precedents. Common Law can react to cases, circumstances and certaintiesthat were not predicted by legislators. It is impossible for parliament toenact for each conceivable issue, activity or condition that may emerge in thepublic eye. Common Law can analyze andcreate reactions to genuine circumstances. Apart from this, there is also consistency found in the Common Law system.
Thedoctrine of Precedent works adequately because it gives solidness andconsistency in the legal system. Parties engaged in trials and hearings can comprehend that choices made depend onPrecedent, instead of individual perspectives. Precedents are often produced bysenior judges in higher courts, which loans them specialist and experience.
