We work in experienced teams of two. You therefore always have an accessible point of contact, guaranteed high quality and strength of performance. As a client, you cannot work with “it could be this, or maybe that”. We write and advise in clear and immediately comprehensible terms with a clear recommendation. So, your further course of action is precisely mapped out.

Many of our lawyers also have additional qualifications in business administration. In this way, we always understand the economic rationale behind our task. For you this ensures precise legal implementation of your commercial objectives.

We work with a high degree of technical support. Cloud based, with business by design software, smart contracts, deep learning technology and the most up-to-date communication tools. This means we can meet even our clients most demanding requirements on equal terms.

We do not distinguish between headline deals and day-to-day business – every client receives closest attention.

With us, you get the deal done. Our strength in efficient management and implementation of M&A, restructuring and real estate projects in particular is well known in the market. This is because we staff projects with lawyers experienced in negotiations, who act fairly and pragmatically.

Your concerns are not confined to office hours. We are equipped with the most modern communication tools and are always available for you when you need us.

We guarantee client protection. We either openly engage with clients or work in the background, as you wish. Cooperation with us is not a one-way street. We are therefore frequently the chosen point of contact for foreign law firms and also act in partnership with many German lawyers, tax consultants and auditors.
