In our more than 50 years of existence we can look back on a long and successful record of providing legal advice. To preserve and develop this heritage, we work constantly to maintain the approach of our founding partners, Jürgen Vogt and Günther Casimir: as attorneys and notaries, both have always strove for the optimal solution by listening to the client and understanding their personal or business goals. This requires assertiveness and professional competence, but also an instinct for compromise, when it would best serve the client’s interests. The reputation of our founding partners thus represents both an honour and a commitment to further develop the professional and technical capacity of our firm. This philosophy drives the continuous training of our attorneys and state-of-the art IT processes.

Our premises on Kurfürstendamm are distinguished by spacious and well-lit offices where ideas and discussions between attorney and client can develop freely, and of course in confidence.
