The cooperation is very pleasant and the partners involved are characterized in particular by a collegial cooperation. I would like to single out Jürgen Feldmeier.

‘The overall level of their services is excellent. Their response is always very quick and appropriate, and their ability to understand and analyze legal and technical issues is high.’

Dorothea Hofer, Jürgen Feldmeier, Andreas Oser are particularly good. They have a strong ability to understand complicated technical issues, give appropriate advice and deal with urgent matters.’

Mr. Feldmeier selects his staff properly to form a strong team capable of handling important cases such as litigation. Our Japanese clients are completely satisfied with the quality and cost-effectiveness of the work done by the team.
