History

Our firm was founded in Mönchengladbach in 1974 by Prof. Dr. Klaus D. Kapellmann as a single partner. Since then it has grown under its own steam to include more than 120 lawyers, of whom more than 40 are partners.

During this time we have opened offices in Düsseldorf (1990), Berlin (1995), Frankfurt/Main (1998), Munich (2000) and Hamburg (2006). Our first foreign office was opened in 2009 in Brussels, the home of the EU institutions. We operate as an integrated partnership across all of our sites.

The constant growth of our firm is equally based on the satisfaction of our clients and that of our younger generation of lawyers.
