All our attorneys have very good experience in the general branches of law and are able to solve legal matters within the whole context. Regarding the continuous changes in legislation and a need for specialization, the individual members of the attorney office, however, more and more focus on a selected branch of law. An indisputable advantage is a substitutability of the individual attorneys within the law firm and a possibility to solve more complex judicial cases in team work.
