We see ourselves as a legal services firm that provides its clients with legal guidance in an ever-changing environment. Our solutions are constructive, creative and practical, and always in the interests of our clients. We strive to meet these demands every day according to our philosophy: professional, clear and precise.


We have remained in Essen for 75 years not out of convenience, but out of conviction. Here, the reality of work is visible everywhere – and the culture that has developed from it, with which we are very comfortable.

We value interdisciplinary work and the short lines of communication within our firm, leading to efficient and effective results for our clients. Our clients range from start-ups to long-established owner-managed businesses and large multinational corporations. Some of them we have been advising for decades, including as an outsourced legal department. This is something we are proud of.

We work for our clients across the country and beyond. We advise where we are needed, regardless of our office presence. For cross-border matters, we draw on a well-established network of partner firms that share our values and expectations on legal and commercial expertise – always in the interests of our clients.


Our team consists of lawyers with many years of experience as well as young and fresh minds. All of them have obtained doctorates. Some of our lawyers are also active in academia, for example as honorary professors, lecturers and authors. In addition to their legal skills, our lawyers are always close to their clients and their needs, ensuring that our advice is always focused and practical.
