Sectors
Medium-Sized & Family Businesses

For more than 30 years, we have been supporting medium-sized companies and family businesses in their day-to-day business and in individual projects. In doing so, we support the management and shareholders with ongoing tax advice, event-related legal advice as well as future-oriented development planning. Like the company’s management, legal and tax advice must keep an eye on the „big picture“ and react flexibly and promptly to current developments. At the same time, due to the liability risks, work must be carried out with the utmost care and the results of the work must include concretely implementable, economical and legally secure proposals for action.

Ongoing tax and legal support for companies in the owner-managed SME sector is one of our most important areas of expertise.
