The Team

Partners - Legal Assistants

It is of utmost importance to us that we ourselves and the members of our staff dispose of sound legal knowledge, combined with an understanding for economic matters and with responsiveness to all matters of life. We expect internships/work experience abroad and thus an insight into foreign legal systems and traditions since that is indispensable when dealing with our clients' activities abroad. Further professional training in traditional and new fields of law are a must for each of us.

At our law firm, every client is attended to by the attorney of his/her choice who of course has resort to the specialist knowledge and experience of his colleagues at any time. We see ourselves as a team; all colleagues and members of the staff are informed about the essential matters dealt with at our law firm so that, during the absence of an attorney, an equivalent handling of his matters is guaranteed. Legal advice and representation requires exact knowledge of the actual conditions, interests and intentions of a client, which is why we draw up our individual solutions in close cooperation with the client and his/her competent staff.
