About CBH

With about 90 lawyers and just as many qualified employees at four locations in Germany, we are there for you: Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg and Munich and one in Brussels. Proximity that counts

And the experience that counts: CBH Rechtsanwälte was founded in Cologne in 1963. Today, our firm is one of the TOP 50 commercial law firms in Germany.

We focus on five strategic areas of commercial and administrative law. Within each of our core areas, we offer the entire spectrum of legal services. We handle individual mandates, but we also regularly provide comprehensive and permanent support for projects or companies. On the basis of our long-term client relationships, we develop long-term strategies, draft contracts, conduct negotiations, prepare legal opinions and represent our clients in official, court and arbitration proceedings.

All our attorneys are highly specialized, and many are specialists in various areas of law. This high degree of specialisation and the fast, structurally smooth exchange of knowledge ensure that our clients are dealt with quickly and cost-effectively, even across different legal fields.

The scholarly articles and legal commentaries, textbooks and basic works written by our lawyers are published by leading legal publishers. Many of our professionals are lecturers at universities and universities of applied sciences and sought-after speakers at renowned lecture events. We are particularly closely associated with the law faculties of the universities in Düsseldorf and Cologne, whose doctoral prizes for the best theses of each year we have sponsored for years.

It is the core of our philosophy to advise and accompany each individual client personally, competently and sustainably. Although we are one of the 50 largest law firms in Germany, we are lean and flexible enough in our structures to be able to assist you optimally and quickly.

We know our clients business with a pronounced medium-sized focus. Our information channels to you are short and efficient. We know that trust is essential. Trust that we justify – as numerous client relationships that have existed for several decades prove.

For 30 years we have been a member of the IUROPE network, a cooperation of European law firms based in Brussels. It is important to us to support our clients in their European and worldwide business as a strong partner at the highest level.

With about 400 lawyers in eight European countries, the network of medium-sized law firms offers its domestic and foreign clients expertise in almost all areas of business law.

All partners of the network are leaders in their respective fields of law and have been working closely together for years. Experience in joint execution of complex projects and cross-border transactions makes our network strong and efficient.

Beyond Europe’s borders, IUROPE has a worldwide network of partner law firms for global cases and transactions. In the USA, for example, we have a strong partnership with Holland & Knight (www.hklaw.com) and in Brazil with Henrique Mourão Advocacia (www.hmourao.com.br) and Aroeira Salles Advogados (www.aroeirasalles.com.br).
