Globalisation has brought fundamental changes to the legal profession. These days, we are not only legal consultants of our clients, but must also ensure that business decisions are implemented safely, efficiently and carefully. Luckily however, the quality benchmark by which we must all measure our work has not changed since the German Civil Code was introduced more than 100 years ago. Our essential obligation is to act with consideration, diligence, loyalty and knowledge in the best interest of our client. While the legal environment may constantly change, the quality benchmark of our work remains the same. Hence our consultation model is modern, yet we also feel obliged to act according to tradition when needed.
