Excellent future prospects are the result of a successful history.
Our successful history began almost fifty years ago. In 1974, the firm was founded by Prof. Dr. Klaus-D. Kapellmann, single lawyer, in Mönchengladbach. From the outset the hallmark of the firm has been the provision of pioneering legal advice combined with a high level of personal engagement.
Decades of continuous organic growth followed. Today Kapellmann has more than 150 lawyers, of whom about 60 are partners in the firm. Most of them either launched their careers with us or came to us at an early stage in their careers. After opening offices in Düsseldorf (1990), Berlin (1995), Frankfurt am Main (1998), Munich (2000) and Hamburg (2006), in 2009 we opened our first foreign office in Brussels, home of the EU institutions. We operate as an integrated partnership across all of our sites.
“We must deliver the highest quality at all times“ and “without clients a lawyer is nothing”. These maxims of Prof. Kapellmann still guide us today.
