Vision and values
To be the leading global business law firm – that is our vision and our goal.
Our ambition is to provide clients with added value over the course of long-term business relationships.
Thanks to our global reach, we can offer consistent quality and goal-oriented legal advice in all markets, locally and internationally, wherever our clients do business.
Our international strength arises from our local expertise.
Our values are what connects our employees, our clients and society.
We believe in long-term relationships with our clients that are characterized by openness and trust. Our experience and expertise, through the integration of practice groups and geographies, enables us to better serve our clients’ needs across national borders and jurisdictions.
We understand and strive to live up to their expectations of us as professionals.
We take pride in the diversity of our employees.
We believe in teamwork for the firm and for our clients.
We enjoy working together and are proud of our shared achievements.
We encourage our employees to accept social responsibility and take part in pro bono projects.
We were the first business law firm in the world to achieve ISO 14001 certification across all our offices worldwide. ISO 14001 is a globally recognised standard which guides the development of an auditable environmental management system.
We signed up to the Charter of Diversity as the first business law firm operating in Germany. This nationwide business initiative under the patronage of German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel encourages diversity in the workplace.
As a member of the Charter we are reaffirming our commitment to diversity in the workplace and to the establishment of a corporate culture and mutual respect.
