We are happy to be lawyers and enthusiastic about our work. That is not, however, the most important thing in life. It is the people with whom we share our life, are friendly with, who embrace us and whom we console if necessary who really matter. We take the time to do that. We do not set chargeable hours. That would not fit with how we understand ourselves.

Your career path
You alone determine your career path with us. We are not interested in status, only in quality and commitment.
The way to a partnership is clear and transparent at our law firm. On becoming a partner, you accept entrepreneurial responsibility for the firm and become part of the partnership. Partnership is usually achieved in six years. The only intermediate stage, that of Associated Partner, is arrived at after three and a half years.
The OPPENLÄNDER Track accommodates individual life planning. To meet individual requirements, we offer alternative career paths with perspective.
