What we do

Our focus is on commercial and tax law with all its associated ancillary areas, including labour, construction and inheritance law.

It is important to us that our clients receive comprehensive and interdisciplinary support and advice.

The main focus of our support services is on the preparation of financial and payroll accounting, cash basis accounting, annual financial statements and of all associated tax returns.

The main focus of our tax consulting services is, among other things, the preparation of essential decisions in the area of private and business asset management (set up of new businesses, capital investments, financing, asset and business succession) as well as the early recognition of crises and optimization of controlling systems in the event of business management problems.

Our legal services cover in particular the areas of corporate law, taking into account tax aspects (business set-up, acquisition, sale, transformation and restructuring of companies), private construction and architectural law, insolvency law as well as general civil and contract law.

The aim of our advice is conflict avoidance and resolution, but of course we also represent our clients in disputes before civil and financial courts throughout Germany.

Our clients come mainly from the region, but also from the whole of Northern Germany as well as from other European and non-European countries. These are medium-sized, usually owner-managed companies from a wide variety of industries and legal forms, as well as freelancers, individual tradesmen and individuals. Our commitment is independent of the size or scope of the resp. assignment.

We maintain long-term client relationships with fixed assignments of contact persons and look forward to hearing from you!
