It is everything we strive to be: it is compelling, accessible, and partnership-driven. The name also has a connection to Berlin.
In 2006. The firm was founded by eight lawyers, some of whom had worked for many years at major law firms.
Berlin has the young talent we are looking for as well as a special dynamic. It also happens to be the city where many of our clients are based.
Our firm’s culture and our approach to consultation can be best realized at a single site. And this is something our clients appreciate. We are also extremely effective at working on cases throughout Germany from our base in Berlin.
As many as are needed.
We provide services only in those fields of law where we have mastered the best practices. Each partner works in the field of law in which he or she has specialized. At our firm, young lawyers first receive general training and then move to a specialization. There is good reason for this: the projects entrusted to us frequently deal with multiple fields of law at one time. Only those lawyers who have learned to look at the bigger picture can provide first-rate, professional support for complex projects.
We don’t. We believe that a good lawyer must not just be capable of structuring and negotiating complex agreements and projects in his or her area of expertise. A good lawyer must also be able to successfully argue a case in court. We believe that a lawyer who is familiar with both of these aspects is the better adviser.
Our ability to work in interdisciplinary teams is our greatest strength. We develop solutions together. By doing so, we create a “collective learning process” that we constantly review and optimize as we strive to refine our project expertise.
We are service providers. For this reason, the individual needs of our lawyers have to take a backseat to the needs of our clients. However, our lawyers do not define themselves solely through their work. We believe in the importance of leading a fulfilling life outside work and strive to carve out enough free time to achieve this. This is crucial to ensuring that we enjoy our work.
First and foremost, we are both efficient and pragmatic. We do not waste our time or that of our clients. Our billing typically reflects the time spent on a project. But we are also open to alternative billing models.
