We advise enterprises in different industries and markets - from construction to trade and industrial manufacturing - in all areas of law that are of interest to our clients. We are instructed by domestic and foreign insurance companies, banks, investment funds and rating agencies. For small and medium-sized companies ("Mittelstand"), we often work as external legal department.
We are there for you
For private clients, we often work in the areas of inheritance law, entrepreneurial succession and capital investments as well as construction law. For many years, we have represented professionals, in particular architects, engineers, physicians and other providers of medical services as well as lawyers and tax advisors, in particular in the fields of organisational law and professional liability.
We are service providers
As we see ourselves
We are service providers; our focus is on the success of our clients. We are aware of the challenges that our clients have to face and understand the business implications. This is the basis for our efficient and solution oriented advice and representation. We provide legal and tax structuring as a whole in a one stop shop.
Our clients ask for personal contact and do not wish to be handed over from specialist to specialist. Therefore, all our professionals have solid knowledge and experience in all major and central areas of business law or tax. In addition, each professional has specialised areas of interest and competence, in particular as a certified legal specialist.
International, on site
We are well experienced in handling international matters. Several partners and associates have been with major international law firms, some are even qualified as lawyers in other jurisdictions and have obtained academic degrees of foreign universities. We are used to communicate in the English, French, Italian and Spanish languages as well.
In the legal professional network DIRO AG and DIRO Business, we cooperate closely with partner firms in 25 European countries. We also have well-established contacts to law firms outside of Europe, in particular in North America and Southeast Asia.
Some of our private clients approach us frequently with instructions on real estate and other financial assets abroad.
We are known for quality
Quality control and digitalisation
We live up to highest expectations in terms of work quality. We employ the so-called four-eyes-principle. Our professionals participate in continued education. They are certified specialists in different areas of law, the special competence is evidenced by numerous publications. Also, our staff is always "up to date".
Our focus is on efficient but secured procedures. At an early point of time, we have already introduced digital processing. As all files are digitalised, they are available also outside of our offices, almost everywhere in the world. Data protection laws are meticulously observed. Of course, you may still communicate with us by traditional mail.
