When exploring a new territory, a good vantage-point can provide a distinct advantage.

In the rapid transformation of the business world that we are experiencing today, companies need a legal advisor who will not just keep pace with them, but who can also think ahead. With our innovative approach to consultancy and a market perspective that has been developed over the past 40 years of our practice, we provide all our clients with a competitive edge. We are one of the leading German corporate law firms, while being the market leader in construction law.

The basis for our success is professional excellence, a thorough understanding of the business world and, above all, the tireless drive to replace good solutions with even better ones. This motivation is shared between our whole team of 160 lawyers and across our 7 offices. The Kapellmann Academy offers valuable incentives for future-oriented thinking, both within our practice and within our broad-ranging activities in research and teaching.

Yet despite looking forward we strive to keep the most important things in focus: our clients and their individual concerns. We take their challenges very seriously and we tackle them in a spirit of partnership. Our clients reward us with the highest honour – their long-term trust.

Our many years of success are made possible by the steady stream of outstanding young lawyers who join us, work with us long-term and grow into respected, experienced lawyers within our firm’s collegiate atmosphere.

Clients are praising Kapellmann for its high expertise and confidence that the firm's lawyers are demonstrating in their advice as well as in negotiations. ‚A large firm with corresponding capacities and quick response times‘, one describes the team while another client highlights 'the expedient action and explanations suitable for laypersons‘ as well as ‚a balanced consideration of legal as well as strategic aspects'.
