The law firm

Our law firm was established more than five decades ago and has evolved from a local representative to a global practice. Since then, we have continued to maintain a strong reputation with clients, business partners, opponents and the courts. Our priority is supporting our clients in achieving the best possible outcome.

Our philosophy

Our philosophy is that clients decide what is best for their needs and our role is to provide individualised, creative and personal support throughout negotiations to securely achieve our clients’ objectives at fair rates.

Location

50 years after the founding of our law firm, we are more convinced than ever that our location is ideal. The Kurfürstendamm represents both the tradition of the Wilhelmine era and the new dynamism in the West of the capital city. Come and visit us!

Attorneys and Notaries

As attorneys we are committed to serving the interests of our clients, either through negotiations with our clients’ partners or by asserting our clients’ rights before the courts. When implementing solutions in notarial deeds, we ensure that the desired agreements are equitable and legally sound.

Our services

Businesses

We provide solution-oriented advice. Our commercially-minded approach is aimed to assist new entrepreneurs, established enterprises of all sizes, sole proprietors, family and corporate businesses in all segments to achieve their goals and secure their rights for continued success.

Family and assets

Our firm has a long history assisting families in comprehensive estate planning to ensure a clear plan is in place when most needed. In addition to estate planning, we have also represented testators and beneficiaries when disputes arise, including in cross-border disputes. Our network of tax advisors are also at-hand to assist with more complex client needs.

Building and real estate

We advise building contractors, property developers and insurers, buyers and sellers of real estate, property management companies and tenants on all aspects of real estate law on a commercial level as well. In addition, we represent clients in real estate litigation and dispute resolution.

As all business becomes global, we have added international lawyers to the firm to serve our clients’ growing needs. In addition to six languages spoken at the firm, we have lawyers qualified in New York and Portugal. In all, our attorneys have legal experience in Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, Mauritius, Spain, the United States and of course, across Germany.
Beyond our international corporate and aviation practice, we have the knowledge and experience for complex international litigation, inheritance matters and debtor creditor issues. In addition, we can provide legal opinions on almost all aspects of German law for transactional matters.
