The concept of this law firm evolved after the founder of the law firm had been working for a major German law firm for 10 years. In Germany the lawyer has always been a legally independent body of the administration of justice, only being bound to the law, his conscience and his clients.
We believe that within the context of the law firm we established, we can render excellent legal and strategic advice in environmental, energy and climate protection law, which are our special fields. Only those projects and matters, which our lawyers can work on according to their personal expertise, will be taken on to advise. The lawyer is a member of a team which is committed to contribute collectively – each one according to his individual qualifications – to the success of a project respectively the resolution of a conflict. This involves the cooperation with in-house counsel and other specialized law firms in fields of law in which we do not advise and do not want to advise. We identify with the matters of our clients while keeping the necessary professional distance.
We want to adhere to a professional code of ethics, based on Christian values, not only to gain the trust of our clients but also the trust and esteem of authorities, politicians and our opponents. This does not diminish our advisory efforts on behalf of our clients’ interests. On the contrary, it enhances them. Approaching our opponents with openness can result in solutions otherwise unattainable.
