Information for Whistleblowers

1. What should be considered before issuing a notice?

Please read the following information for whistleblowers at your leisure. Then decide whether and how you would like to pass on your tip.

How do I create a notice, what information is needed?
Please let us know,

  • at which company supported by our law firm
  • what exactly
  • at what time
  • where
  • and with which participants


Please also tell us who else is aware of the incident and whether there are any documents (e.g. documents, photos, e-mails) relating to the incident.

Please try to avoid statements that are inaccurate or false in content.

If your information is conjectural or if you are unsure, please make this clear. Use formulations such as: “I think it is possible that …” or “I believe …”.

Can I submit my tip anonymously?
You can submit your tip completely anonymously. This means that we will not ask for your personal data if you wish us to do so. If you disclose your identity to us, we are obliged to maintain confidentiality. This means that we will not disclose your personal data to our client or to law enforcement agencies. However, when providing the information, you should make sure that you do not disclose any facts that would allow conclusions to be drawn about your identity.

If you want to make sure that third parties do not access your communication with us, you can use the messenger Threema. Effective end-to-end encryption is guaranteed here.

If you wish to remain anonymous, it is still important to give us the opportunity to ask you questions. You can let us know how to reach you via the contact form. We are also available for a personal meeting with you in our offices.

Does my tip create an attorney-client relationship?
The provision of a tip does not create an attorney-client relationship between the whistleblower and the Rechtsanwaltskanzlei Fricke. A client-lawyer relationship only exists between the law firm and the company that uses the ombudsman service of the Rechtsanwaltskanzlei Fricke.

Nevertheless, we are obliged to keep the identity of the whistleblower secret if the whistleblower wishes so.

What happens to my tip?
We check the plausibility of the information you provide, anonymise it if necessary and forward it to the company in the form of a confidential report in edited form. The company then decides whether it will follow up the tip and have it investigated or whether it will pass the matter on to external bodies such as the public prosecutor’s office.

Please note that the investigation of information is particularly stressful for the company and the persons concerned. We therefore ask you to carefully check in advance whether the information provided is correct.
