We offer excellent legal and strategic advice in our specialist areas of environmental, energy and climate protection law.

We only take on projects and requests for advice and support that our lawyers can handle using the necessary personal expertise. The lawyer is a member of a team that works together for the success of a project or the resolution of a conflict. This includes working with lawyers in companies and other specialised law firms in Germany and other European countries, particularly in areas of law that we do not advise.

We identify ourselves with the concerns of our clients without losing the necessary professional distance. As an experienced team, we are in a position to develop creative, legally compliant solutions in complex constellations or political tasks, while also incorporating the expertise of other specialist areas.

Our work ethic is shaped by Christian values, with which we not only gain the trust of our clients, but also the trust and appreciation of authorities, political decision makers and our opponents. This does not diminish our advisory efforts on behalf of our clients’ interests. On the contrary, it enhances them. The transparent interaction with our opponents can result in solutions, which are otherwise unattainable.

We support you with goal-oriented advice in a team, strategic management of complex issues and with pragmatic and legally compliant solutions.

  • industrial and power plants
  • infrastructural facilities
  • measures for climate protection and
  • measures of nature protection, flood control and watercourse development.
