Our own social commitment
One focus of our firm lies in the legal and tax support of SMEs and consulting for discerning private individuals and non-profit organisations. We cannot credibly represent the responsibility of private individuals for the general good unless we take our own social commitments seriously. Therefore our team supports many non-profit projects on an honorary basis thus contributing to participation and playing a part in a lively civil society.
