You have high expectations of your advisors - and rightly so!


You deserve excellent advice. Professional excellence requires specialization. Our experts deliberately concentrate only on selected areas of work, each of which combines an enormous amount of technical and practical knowledge. Our professionals are therefore among the first in their respective fields of expertise. We are regularly featured at the top of national and international rankings. In addition to advising our clients, who are always at the top of our list, we also act as second experts and as advisors to other law firms and colleagues.

Our professionals publish extensively in their areas of expertise. They teach in business, as well as professional circles, are active in the education and training of young colleagues and are involved in university teaching. Our high quality standards for our own work and our constant striving for excellence lead to the best solutions for our clients.

You deserve excellent advice.


Clients appreciate our clear advice. We take a stand. Instead of writing wordy memos and leaving the actual work to the client, we focus on pragmatic recommendations and comprehensible, well-founded analyses. We take a clear position on what a decision should look like from a legal or tax point of view, without taking the decision away from the client.

Our wealth of experience and market presence enable us to anticipate future developments at an early stage. This means that clients are not caught off guard when laws change, administrative practice develops further or the market balance shifts. In this way, we implement sustainable solutions for clients that stand the test of time and are in accordance with the highest market standards. This is additional added value for our clients.

Clients appreciate our clear advice.

Global reach

Profit from our international network. The majority of our mandates are cross-border. We work together with leading international experts from other fields and law firms. We maintain long-term working contacts with our international partners and coordinate their cooperation on the respective mandate. We are completely independent and not part of an exclusive network. Rather, we have a larger selection of established contacts in all relevant jurisdictions from which we can jointly select, tailored to your requirements and budget. If you have existing contacts with foreign firms, we are also happy to work with them, thanks to our independence. Your business is international - and we provide you with seamless, cross-border service with our international partners.

Profit from our international network.


You receive independent advice. POELLATH is not part of any other company and is not a member of any national or international alliance. Instead, we work on a mandate basis with leading experts in other fields and other law firms. These colleagues, with whom we are often on friendly terms through long-standing working relationships, are also among the best in their respective fields. Since we are not accountable to anyone but our clients and our conscience, we are free in our decisions and free in our judgment.

You receive independent advice.


You receive comprehensive service. POELLATH offers specialized legal and tax advice only in selected areas of work – but in these areas we offer comprehensive service. With a service mentality of the highest order, we offer full service in all our practice groups. We are renowned for our speed and unrestricted availability.

In transactions, we act as a “one-stop shop” for our clients. In addition to our own advice, we call in leading specialists in other required legal and specialist areas in which we do not offer advice ourselves. We support our clients in a variety of ways, e.g. in all aspects of organizing a family office. If desired, we can conduct a “beauty contest” for clients, recruit or replace executives and offer many other services as requested by our clients. We are service providers – so you can concentrate on your business.

You get comprehensive service.

You may impose high ethical standards on us. Our diverse social and cultural commitment is an important part of our corporate culture. We are successful together with our clients. We want to use this success and our skills for the benefit of others and express our gratitude by supporting various projects. We advise on a large number of pro bono mandates. Environmental protection and sustainable management are important to us. We want to work together with you to leave the world in a better position than we found it.

Partnership and Board

You have an entrepreneurial-minded partner by your side. POELLATH is a true partnership of lawyers and tax advisors. Our partnership allows the individual partners a great deal of freedom to develop their own practices. Thus, our firm is constantly growing from within and opens up new fields of advice. The freedom of partnership also includes responsibility. Our partnership manages itself. Each partner is responsible for his or her own administrative area. Thus, everyone makes a contribution. In addition, our management board, consisting of three partners, sets the strategic direction for the firm. The board coordinates the administrative areas of the firm and prepares for the important decisions of the partnership. We believe that our corporate culture, the POELLATH spirit, is special - and leads to better results for our clients.
