About us

FRANZ Rechtsanwälte is a renowned law firm with its main office in Düsseldorf. The partners of our law firm are entrepreneurs themselves and think as entrepreneurs.

Our aim is to promote and ensure the business success of our clients with customized legal solutions, developed creatively and competently in partnership with you. As your legal advisers, we place utmost importance on character, experience and trust.

Our legal advice is guided by our clients’ interests. In doing so we take into consideration that every task is unique and requires special expert knowledge and individual skills. We assign the best suitable lawyer or handpick an individual team to assist you. Here we place great value on the personal contact and attention you receive from the partner, who responsibly manages your case and brings his experience to bear on your behalf.

The partners of our firm have many years of experience in advising and representing national and international companies and entrepreneurs. From experience, we know that high-quality, practical solutions are not all that our clients expect from us. Also important are efficiency, flexibility, adherence to deadlines and a business-oriented presentation of work results.

Although we are necessarily specialized, we never lose sight of the overall picture. We can look beyond the limits of our respective disciplines, thereby minimizing inefficiencies at the points of contact between various internal functions.

We are a partnership law firm with the ability to make quick decisions. Very seldom do we encounter conflicts of interest. Cases are accepted promptly, allowing you a high degree of planning certainty at short notice – especially when time is critical.

Our clients include both small and medium-sized enterprises and large international corporations, which we advise in all important matters of business life. Special focuses here include company law and M&A restructuring projects, where we not only support negotiations and help to draft contracts, but also often structure and oversee the entire process. In delivering our day-to-day advisory services to clients, we often fulfil the role of an external legal department. At the same time, we provide in-depth consultation on special issues, including labor law-related subjects, industrial property protection and competition law, questions concerning German and European anti-trust law, distribution law, financing and insolvencies. We of course also represent our clients in both litigation and arbitration proceedings as well as in preparation for contentious disputes.

A considerable number of our clients have their headquarters abroad, especially in the USA, Great Britain, France and the Benelux countries. We offer cross-border support in our various practice areas. In addition to German, we also deliver our services in English and French, while also representing you before French courts when needed. Thanks to a broad network of longstanding contacts to other advisors, we are able to provide our clients with cross-border consultation services addressing other important legal systems.
