PROFILE

The roots of our law firm go back to the year 1928 when the attorney Dr. Conrad Boettcher established a law office which, after 1945, gained an outstanding reputation in business circles under the joint name "Boettcher Beinert". From that time onwards the core business of the firm was to act as a consultant to entrepreneurs in the fields of tax and corporate law.
 
Professor Dr. Joerg Beinert passed away in 1981. Further to Professor Dr. Binz joining the firm in 1977, he and the current partners Professor Dr. Freudenberg (since 1981), Dr. Sorg (since 1983), Dr. Mayer (since 1999), Dr. Burger (since 2011), Iris Rosenbauer (since 2012) and Dr. Weinand (since 2016), have focused even more on enterprise succession, reorganization of private companies and M&A-transactions. Professor Binz, in keeping with the tradition of his predecessors Boettcher and Beinert, has teached the subject of family owned enterprises at a higher educational institute (1996-2008). Even Professor Freudenberg and Dr. Burger teach as a lecturer at the Universities of Stuttgart and Leipzig. This and regular contributions to legal and tax publications are important for our consulting work because they bring academic know-how into our practical advice to our clients. Furthermore our firm continues to publish the well-known work about the «GmbH & Co. KG" which remains today, in most cases, the appropriate legal form for family owned private companies (currently in its 12th Edition).
 
Our practice is not only based on the aforementioned know-how, which has been developed over many decades, but also on our knowledge of the characteristics of an owner-led enterprise with all of its well-known strengths and weaknesses. In the tradition of Boettcher-Beinert, who also considered the human and psychological aspects in their work, we prefer an integrated approach. This requires on the one hand a high level of legal competence (in particular in tax and corporate law) and on the other hand strong personalities, negotiating skills, intelligent ideas and business creativity. The tax and legal know-how together with our focus on attaining our clients´ business objectives constitutes the special profile of our firm. Our expertise is often sought after if conventional solutions have failed or appear to offer no prospects of success from the outset..
 
With seven partners we are a small, highly-specialised law firm. We do not employ a team of advisers and assistants. Our clients receive the benefit of highly personalised, hands-on attention from lawyers of partner status.
