We liaise open­ly and fre­quent­ly with our clients, com­mu­ni­cat­ing “on their lev­el” and nev­er hes­i­tat­ing to make clear rec­om­men­da­tions.
Before doing any­thing, we lis­ten care­ful­ly to what they say in order to gain a com­pre­hen­sive overview of any com­mer­cial­ly and legal­ly rel­e­vant issues. Indeed, we can only mean­ing­ful­ly and suc­cess­ful­ly rep­re­sent our clients’ inter­ests if we under­stand their inter­ests and inten­tions.
This under­stand­ing then forms the basis of the strat­e­gy that we devel­op joint­ly with the client and the indi­vid­ual steps required for imple­ment­ing it.
More­over, we believe that per­son­al sup­port is a vital part of any last­ing and trust­ing client-lawyer rela­tion­ship.

It is equal­ly impor­tant to us that you have a detailed under­stand­ing of any­thing that we devise togeth­er. We con­sid­er our­selves to be your legal “trans­la­tor” explain­ing often com­plex and obscure con­trac­tu­al and trans­ac­tion­al struc­tures and con­cepts, espe­cial­ly in the fol­low­ing spe­cial­ist fields:
