We are proud to be one of the law firms which, in the interest of our clients, have remained independent on the one hand, and put an international focus in our work on the other hand. Our office combines practical experience with academic excellence and thoroughness when dealing with each case. Our clients’ interests are our priority and form the basis upon which we assess our work.
In particular we strive to link the benefits of a small office - i. e. promptness, clear internal procedures, low overhead costs - with the advantages of our national and international network.
We advise and represent companies as well as private clients in and out of court in all areas of legal protection, like civil law, employment law, company law, commercial law and intellectual property rights.
We are a member of professional organisations, such as the "Deutsche Vereinigung für Gewerblicher Rechtsschutz und Urheberrecht e.V." (German Federation for Intellectual Property Rights and Copyright), the "Deutsche Anwaltsverein" (German Lawyer Association) and the "Kölner Anwaltsverein” (Lawyer Association of Cologne), the "DACH e.V." (a German, Austrian and Swiss Lawyers' Association) as well as the Ars Legis e.V. (Ars Legis registered association), an international network for lawyers, patent attorneys, tax consultants and auditors.
Through our active membership in these organisations we are connected to many law firms all over Europe, from Sweden to Italy and Portugal to Hungary, as well as with offices outside Europe. As a result of this close co-operation we are able to guarantee our clients the essential internationality in order to answer any questions arising during the solution of a case or problem quickly and in a straightforward way. Another speciality of one of these organisations, namely the Ars Legis e.V., is that in each member firm there is at least one lawyer who is capable of reading and writing in German, so that our German clients can be advised in their native language.
Our office communicates in German, English and French.
