Our committment

Advising companies is a core area of our activities. We advise owner-managed companies, entrepreneurs and internationally operating group companies comprehensively in all phases of business activities, including the settlement of disputes.

In the realisation of your business objectives, our experts in the areas of company law/M&A, tax law/compliance, intellectual property and competition law, criminal law/compliance as well as insolvency law are at your disposal. When required, we work in interdisciplinary teams.  


Successful counselling requires more than just legal expertise. Understanding economic considerations is equally important.  Thus, our consultants not only offer the requisite legal expertise, reflected in their accreditation as specialist practitioners and/or journal publications, but in many cases also draw on an in-depth understanding of economic matters acquired through commercial and managerial training.

Some clients have worked with us for decades and developed special personal relationships based on trust. We have come to place great importance on assigning you a regular contact person, who is at your disposal, no matter how complex the project.
