Why we are different

We don’t say what’s impossible, we say what is possible. In our opinion, besides legal expertise, business law requires an integrated consulting approach. Through our sister company in.addition and our collaboration partners, we combine legal, business, tax, strategic and operational expertise. This enables us to advise companies, entrepreneurs, and investors in a holistic manner. We are happy to take on the role of a central navigator for you, bringing the different areas of expertise together and on course.

We want to understand your business and its challenges beyond the actual project assignment, because we are curious, and business fascinates us in all its various facets. That’s why we ask a lot of questions and give our opinion, not just the legal one.

During the mandate, we see ourselves as a member of your team. At the same time, we keep our distance to assess a project neutrally. This is how we create added value and mutual trust.

We are partners for a long-term cooperation, for the development and expansion of your company, for ups and downs. That’s why we look back with pride on our many long-standing, international business relationships.

What we provide in concrete terms

Our range of services encompasses all facets of business law. These include:

  • Corporate
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Commercial
  • Financing
  • Restructuring / Insolvency
  • Corporate Succession

Frequently, legal or business challenges cannot be pinpointed exactly into these categories. That is why we develop tailor-made solutions that often go beyond the legal aspects. Are the structures encrusted, is rust gnawing away? We also take responsibility in crises.

We support our clients in the following life situations:

  • Operational day-to-day business
  • Strategic decisions
  • Crisis and special situations

Even beyond classical business law, we are your contact for all legal matters. If need be, we fall back on our network of long-standing collaboration partners.
