Our clients include old-established companies as well as young founders, start-ups, agencies, financial service providers and private individuals who appreciate the highest quality and customized solutions. With passion we accompany you with progressive visions on your way.

We not only understand our profession, but also stand out due to our high level of industry knowledge. We are founders ourselves and it is our strong belief that only a ful understanding of your idea, your product and your history will enable us to provide the best possible legal support in your interest. Our clients deal with artificial intelligence, the block chain and applications for the Internet of Things. We contribute our part by developing new types of contractual structures to combine complex issues with traditional economics.

When working with us, you will benefit from our passion for our profession. We bring a strong academic background for the best negotiation strategy. The development of customized strategies for contract negotiations, investment rounds, exit situations or litigation and negotiation management are as important in our work as legal know-how. We stand by your side as your partners and if necessary as tough litigators in front of you to enforce your interests. Your economic success is always our goal.

We advise people.

Legal questions must always be considered within the context of the people who pose them. Trusting partnerships form the basis for tailor-made solutions.

We develop solutions – together with you.

Legal problems are often complex. We show you the opportunities and risks, and work together with you to find the path that benefits you most.

We speak your language.

Complex problems do not necessitate complex language.

Solving problems, not causing them.

We work efficiently, pragmatically and with one eye on the objective at all times.

We like to litigate – but only when necessary.

We love our work. And litigating in front of a court is part of it. But only when it is the right solution for your specific problem.

Our areas of activity

Commercial Law and Corporate Law One of our core competences is advising established companies, start-ups, managing directors, board members and shareholders.

We support you from the founding of a company onwards and are at your disposal for all important questions from legal structuring to the drafting of complex regulations in shareholder agreements. We assist corporations (GmbH, UG and AG) and partnerships (GbR, OHG, KG) and their shareholders in their daily business and represent them both out of court and in court.

Labour Law We review and draft employment and other service contracts as well as termination agreements and advise and represent companies, managing directors and employees in all labour law matters.

Whether at the beginning of an employment relationship, during it or at the end - we identify suitable solutions and implement them for you. You can rely on our expertise in the digitalised world of work, from drafting contracts and supporting negotiations, to issuing warnings and notices of termination, to enforcing your interests in court.

Real Estate Law We advise you on the purchase and sale, development and tenancy law use of your property. We know the Berlin market well and you will benefit from our broad experience.

The real estate sector is busier than ever, which is also reflected in the productivity of the legislator. Numerous new regulations have been added in recent years in Germany and especially in Berlin. With our agile advice and short response times, we are reliable partners at your side so that you can keep up with the speed of the market. We review and draft purchase and lease agreements, accompany you in negotiations on your real estate projects and represent your interests in court if necessary.

Copyright | Trademark Law When ideas are brought to life, assets are created. Protecting these is a legitimate concern of entrepreneurial and creative activity.

We protect your intellectual property and support you in the application and registration of trademarks in Germany, Europe and worldwide. If legal conflicts arise, we represent companies in and out of court in copyright, trademark, design and competition law.

T&C and Contract Law We assist you in drafting, reviewing and negotiating individual contracts and general terms and conditions.

Whether it is an individual software development contract or an IT project contract, licence conditions, freelance contracts or general terms and conditions, we have many years of experience in advising software companies, independent developers, designers and e-commerce companies.
