Schalast | Our Practice groups in Frankfurt, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg & Stuttgart

At Schalast we are aware that legal knowledge alone is not enough to guarantee first-class legal advice. Besides a fundamental understanding of business and economics, a strong team ensures a consistently high level of legal advice. This is why we have formed practice groups for our key advice areas in which specialist lawyers jointly provide clients with advice and support. We also in this respect attach particular importance to interdisciplinary collaboration between our individual practice groups.

Our practice groups are cross-locational and combine the know-how of every lawyer in the firm, in Frankfurt am Main, Berlin, Dusseldorf as well as in Hamburg and Stuttgart. We also place particular emphasis on interdisciplinary cooperation between the various practice groups in different areas of law.

Areas of law

For this reason, we have formed separate practice groups for the areas of Labour Law, Banking & Finance, Corporate / M&A, Dispute Resolution, IP, Media & Technology, Communications & Infrastructure, Tax and Notaries.
