The VC offers its members who have been registered for at least 3 months a legal protection. A personal request for legal protection has to be granted by the VC board and finally needs to be processed by the VC legal department. Since this process will take time, it is necessary that we now send out our legal protection requests with some lead time to the specific information expected from LAT. As soon as the VC has received the offer from LAT, they can then take immediate action.

VC Members without private legal protection are represented by the in-house legal department. VC Members with private legal protection insurance can independently find a lawyer but let the VC pay the excess.
