‘Dr. Daniel Hund: High level of expertise, pragmatic approach.’

‘Team excellently organized, high availability.

We have been working with the labor law team for a number of years. They are always very professional with extensive specialist knowledge, trustworthy, efficient, solution-oriented and react quickly.’

‘Dr Barthel: When many lawyers give an answer ‘no’ without an alternative solution, Dr. Barthel always has a solution and pulls it through. We are very grateful for that. Dr Barthel has extensive expertise and helped us a lot with the transfer of operations. Dr Barthel is always available, even when he’s on vacation. We are very satisfied with the cooperation.’

The networking of the individual specialist lawyers across the locations is very good and there is a very high level of service orientation.’

Our recently completed centralization process in several departments was very well supported and the disputes in court were not settled with the prospect of maximum profits for the law firm, but good, quick legal clarification.’

Testimonials

‘The personal, professional and yet cordial way in which you are greeted and picked up in the office and on the phone is outstanding. A consistently high standard is offered from telephone reception to advice from specialist lawyers. Requests for appointments on our premises were approved at any time, flexibility is a matter of course.’

What is particularly impressive is the care with which various legal issues are dealt with. The interaction of different lawyers deserves an award, because for us as a client the result comes across as if it came from a single source. Sufficient time is taken into account and right questions are asked so that problems are considered from all angles leading to results that are sometimes different than what the first impression conveyed.’

Opportunities as well as risks are considered in detail and discussed in an understandable way. Improving one’s own basic knowledge through explanations in difficult situations is a further added value. Every request is processed and explained in an understandable way. At all meetings, the participants were well prepared and deeply involved in the subject matter. As clients, we feel that we are in very good hands, well advised and always well and, above all, professionally represented.’

‘Matthias Zimmer-Goertz is an integral part of the legal circle in the area of data protection. Within a very short time, Zimmer-Goertz familiarizes himself with the client’s business model and provides security and valuable suggestions for improvement, so that data protection conformity is ensured. His routine in dealing with the data protection authorities supports the client and ensures quick clarification in the event of a complaint.’

The open, friendly and objective way of looking after clients creates a very trusting working atmosphere. Every consultation and every query is explained in a professional and yet understandable way, so that you can learn from the consultation. Discussions with the other side take place in a calm, factual manner, which has an absolutely de-escalating effect.’

‘Susanne Klein is in charge of IT and data protection at BB and is a reliable, highly competent and outstanding expert in this area. Her quality speaks for itself. The cooperation was exemplary and particularly problem-oriented.’
