German term or phrase: GK.
In a court decision, the following appears:

"Rechtsanwälte CMS pp,
Stadthausbrücke, Hamburg, Gz.: Fl-sc 99/13581, GK.: 150"

Any suggestions for the abbreviation "GK"?

Thanks,
Harold

English translation:Gesamtkatalog - central catalog or master catalog
Explanation:
Abbreviations such as this are notoriously difficult if not impossible to resolve.

Gerichtskosten just doesn't seem to fit in the context which gives info on a law firm and file references. (Plus, there is no currency indicator, which also leads me to think that GK might refer to something other than court costs.)

One possible resolution for GK which seems to fit your context, is Gesamtkatalog (both per Duden and Muret-Sanders) - central catalog or master catalog.

That would seem to fit in with Gz - Geschäftszeichen and the file references given.

And for completeness' sake, here's another, albeit more remote, possibility:
GK - Gewerbekammer (per Duden, WB der Abkürzungen) - Trade Board or Chamber of Commerce per Muret-Sanders

Hope this helps

disagree  Ulrike Lieder (X): Gerichtskosten doesn't really fit into the context of a law firm's info; nor is there any indication of currency (Euro or DM).

This might fit your context, especially if the context is international law.
