Mission: We are a partner to entrepreneurs, founders and investors in Germany and abroad. We work with them to find ways of tackling their economic challenges and driving innovation. Successful collaboration depends very much on advanced legal expertise; an entrepreneurial thinking and our passion are what set us apart from other law firms. Working in small, highly specialised teams we not only provide legal advice, we take responsibility for the business involved.

The size of our Berlin office allows us to appoint top-quality people. Not only are we legally highly qualified, we also love complex economic issues and tackle complicated calculations (carried interests, cap tables, liquidation preferences, fund flows etc.).

billion euros of experience

Transactions are our speciality. We manage transactions on behalf of concerns, private equity companies and start-ups. By the end of 2016 we had handled transactions totalling €11 billion.

times passion

There’s no such thing as can’t. That applies to contractual negotiations and it applies when we go to court. The proof: since our law firm was founded in 2007 we have obtained over 250 competition law injunctions on behalf of our clients.

million euros of efficiency

Time is money. Your money. That is why we focus on the essentials. An example: short contracts can be sufficient – we recently sold a company for 72 million Euro with a nine page agreement.

Since foundation of our firm about ten years ago all our key clients sticked with us. We will gladly convince you of the quality of our service.
