Decisions of the BGH are not the end of the legal possibilities for the injured investors. Under certain circumstances, investors can hold themselves harmless with their lawyers!
The background is as follows:
In order to inhibit the expiry of the statute of limitations, the lawyers of the "Securenta" investors had already made so-called "quality applications" in the run-up to the lawsuits ultimately rejected because of the statute of limitations. In the opinion of the BGH, however, they failed to adequately state the scope of the claims made in the applications. The goal of the quality applications - inhibiting the limitation period - was therefore not achieved and the claims are time-barred.
However, because it is one of the lawyer's duties to ensure that his client's claims do not become time-barred, there is now a possibility that the responsible lawyers will be liable for the damage incurred. As an affected investor in the Göttinger Group, you should therefore have your claims examined by a lawyer specializing in legal liability law.
