About us

First-Rate Legal Services – Successful Collaboration

Thümmel, Schütze & Part­ner is a full-ser­vice law firm pro­vid­ing com­mer­cial­ly-ori­ent­ed le­gal ad­vice and ser­vices in re­la­tion to all sec­tors of the econ­o­my. The firm has four of­fices in Ger­many and one of­fice in asia. Since its es­tab­lish­ment in 1973 in Stuttgart the firm has grown steadi­ly and now com­pris­es over 50 lawyers and two no­taries.

We are ad­vis­er and al­ly to cor­po­ra­tions and busi­ness own­ers. Our clients are our fo­cus: in pro­vid­ing ad­vice to our clients we keep their best in­ter­ests in mind and seek to ad­dress their in­di­vid­u­al re­quire­ments. Cre­at­ing the best pos­si­ble so­lu­tion – both ef­fi­cient and on a per­fect le­gal ba­sis – is our over­all ob­jec­tive.

The firm has a wide port­fo­lio of list­ed com­pa­nies as well as mid-sized fam­i­ly-owned en­ter­pris­es, in­dus­try as­so­ci­a­tions and pub­lic en­ti­ties. Ad­vice is main­ly pro­vid­ed on trans­ac­tions in­volv­ing banks and in­sur­ance com­pa­nies, au­to­mo­tive sup­pli­ers, en­gi­neer­ing com­pa­nies, en­ter­tain­ment and me­dia com­pa­nies, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies and com­pa­nies in­volved in the re­al es­tate and con­struc­tion sec­tor. Giv­en the strict le­gal frame­work and the in­creas­ing­ly liti­gious en­vi­ron­ment for ex­ec­u­tives, we reg­u­lar­ly ad­vise in­di­vid­u­al di­rec­tors and of­fi­cers on per­son­al li­a­bil­i­ty is­sues to re­duce their ex­po­sure to risk.

The firm’s lawyers have con­sid­er­able com­pe­tence and di­verse ex­pe­ri­ence in a num­ber of Ar­eas of Ex­per­tise. In these ar­eas we have been in­volved in sig­nif­i­cant man­age­ri­al de­ci­sions, re­struc­tur­ings, merg­ers and ac­qui­si­tions and eco­nom­ic pro­cess­es by pro­vid­ing ad­vice, ne­go­ti­a­tion, le­gal opin­ions, and han­dling di­verse lit­i­ga­tion in var­i­ous fo­rums.

In ad­di­tion, “new econ­o­my” ar­eas and new mar­ket de­vel­op­ments such as cor­po­rate gov­er­nance and cor­po­rate com­pli­ance, cap­i­tal mar­kets and cap­i­tal in­vest­ments, PPP-pro­jects and pub­lic pro­cure­ments in the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­dus­try have be­come a core com­po­nent of our lawyers’ prac­tice.

With the of­fice in Sin­ga­pore and as a mem­ber of Ter­raLex with as­so­ci­at­ed law firms lo­cat­ed in all rel­e­vant eco­nom­ic mar­kets we of­fer in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions at a glob­al lev­el. We have a strong, long-term in­ter­na­tion­al law prac­tice pro­vid­ing le­gal ad­vice on var­i­ous cross-bor­der is­sues, par­tic­u­lar­ly with re­gard to West­ern and South­ern Eu­rope, South and South-east Asia and the USA. In mat­ters re­lat­ed to USA we co­op­er­ate with the law firm Coz­en O’ Con­nor.

Re­gard­less of each of­fice’s lo­ca­tion and the lawyers’ spe­cial­i­sa­tion, Thümmel, Schütze & Part­ner con­sid­ers it­self a law firm which of­fers first-class le­gal ad­vice com­bined with in­di­vid­u­al coun­selling. Set­ting up teams in ma­jor deals re­quir­ing in­ter­dis­ci­plinary ac­tion is a cor­ner­stone of our dai­ly prac­tice. Ef­fi­cien­cy, cre­ativ­i­ty and, in par­tic­u­lar, the qual­i­ty of our le­gal ad­vice is our fo­cus. Re­spon­sive­ness is our strength – we re­act in a prompt, ef­fec­tive way, fo­cussed on the needs of our clients.
