To be lifelong partners. To be lawyers that serve
entrepreneurs, investors and families from all over the world.
To enable, structure and protect their ideas. With our excellence, experience and our network.
From family office investments through private equity and classic M&A to venture capital. This is what we have been doing for over 13 years. We will support you not only with our deep corporate law knowledge and experience but also with our broad network if need be.
Investors are always on the lookout for investment opportunities in start-ups that seek to disrupt existing or create new business models. Likewise, founders require strong and supportive investors on their path to build solid and successful companies. We assist our clients in all phases of the investment process, from early stage angel investments up until large-volume exits. With our deep expertise and experience in Venture Capital investments we support our clients in finding a reliable and individual legal framework for their investment interests.
Technology transforms. No business will remain the same in the years to come. Digitalization changes even the most traditional of businesses. We are prepared to meet that challenge with you. Our technology practice covers all areas of expertise required in this context, ranging from IP to IT, including data protection laws and covering all aspects of commercial law.
Most investors require real estate to be part of their portfolio. So do we. Our experience ranges from the acquisition and sale of commercial estate portfolios to the acquisition and divestiture of large single commercial objects, including hotels, shopping centers etc. We cover all aspects of commercial real estate, with particular focus on developments and investment work. We are also well experienced on various matters of asset and facility management as well as Green Buildings. We support you not only with our deep real estate law knowledge and experience but also with our extensive market understanding and network if need be.
We are fully aware of our great responsibility as a business law firm. We value the environment and assume social responsibility.
Our real estate and technology practices are well experienced in the area of Green Buildings. We help you develop best practices and innovative concepts in this dynamic field, including risk management and CSR strategies.
We can’t do any of this alone. It is a team effort. That’s why we watch out for one another, including you.
We are entrepreneurs. We understand the needs you feel because we feel them, too.
We don’t give up. We work hard to help you execute and safeguard your ideas.
We are genuine to our mission and values. And we are independent enough to speak up when others won’t tell you the truth.
Life will be a long journey. We will be the trusted partner you can rely on. In good and bad times.
We are grateful. For what we have. For being able to do what we chose to do. And we don’t take it for granted.
