reasons for CONFIDENCE & TRUST

With a lawyer not a firm

If we have learnt one thing from large sized law firms is that at the end with all the best will, it is not possible to offer a personalized service. You hire a brand. So be it. However, for the fee you pay, you are entitled to have your personal lawyer, full-time at your service. And that's what still many people ara looking for.

Relationship between client and lawyer should not be two brands which work together to manage risks, but two persons who can establish Confidence & Trust in each other, and be sure that their matters will always remain confidential.

In our discretion
The client-attorney privilege is the basis of all ethics: we do never give information about our clients or affairs. Therefore, we do not follow the trend of rankings, which are based on privileged information, at least in our opinion.
