Does a contact constitute an attorney-client relationship between an informant and the ombudsperson?

No, the ombudsman does not become your lawyer, but remains instead the attorney of the company that retained him. However, the contract between the ombudsman and the company also includes protective consequences for you as informant. Thus the ombudsman counsels you on all matters concerning the information you provide. Beyond that – e.g. in connection with labour laws – he cannot act as your attorney.
