Enjoying the personal relationship with our clients and taking pleasure in our work

We share with our clients curiosity and creativity. Both are the basis for innovation, for our clients and ourselves. We aim to establish and maintain sustainable long-term client relationships based on individual cooperation and mutual trust and respect.

With dedication, long-standing experience and a commercial understanding of our clients’ needs

We are personally committed to our clients and their concerns. We think entrepreneurial. Our advice goes beyond review and explanation of legal positions: we offer specific and pragmatic recommendations how to deal with the matters at hand, based not only on our legal expertise, but on our long-standing experience in the markets we act in.

Efficient and transparent

Our experience creates efficiency. In areas outside our expertise, we use our national and international networks to involve external advisors that live up to the high expectations of our clients. If we anticipate that fees will run out of proportion to value added or transaction volume, we recommend ways to avoid this.
