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.
