Clouth & Partner Rechtsanw&aauml;te

Our Approach

We are convinced that the quality of legal advice is largely determined not only by the advisor’s expertise but also by the personal relationship of trust between client and advisor. Based on this conviction we have intentionally pursued the concept of a partnership-based boutique law firm.

Beyond client care as recognized experts we are actively engaged in discussions on new legal issues related to our areas of expertise by publications and lectures.
