SKW Schwarz Rechtsanwälte: Germany - Berlin; Frankfurt; Hamburg; Munich


GERMANY TerraLex Locations: Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich

As a leader among independent corporate law firms, SKW Schwarz has four office locations in German business hubs, accommodating more than 130 lawyers. In addition, we network with partner firms worldwide. We advise companies in all fields of national and international business law. Our professional expertise enables us to handle large cases of any complexity. At the same time, we are more personal and more dynamic than the very large law firms. Legal issues of tomorrow, digital change, disruptive technologies, and innovative business models transform markets and societies.

As technology challenges the status quo, unprecedented legal questions arise. Enter SKW Schwarz. We address these questions in prompt and yet sustainable ways. Our point of view is holistic but geared towards innovation. We offer up-to-date legal advice on such topics as the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, drone logistics, FinTech, smart city, and urban mobility.

Our wide-ranging and award-winning practical performance is informed by a close exchange with state-of-the-art research institutions. We are especially strong in the domains of media and technology. Legal Tech SKW Schwarz is one of the pioneers in the field of legal tech. We founded SKW Schwarz @ Tech GmbH in 2018 to bundle all legal tech activities across all practice areas and offices. SKW Schwarz @ Tech GmbH is focused on the development, customization, promotion and distribution of legal tech products and applications. We also provide specific advice in connection with the digitalisation of legal services. Active exchange and cooperation with legal-tech companies such as Bryter and Smashdocs is extremely important for us. We work closely with external consultants, for example in the area of Legal Design Thinking. Aspects of work, legal competence, and high quality are a matter of course in legal advice. However, our attitude goes beyond that aspect. We do not seek to prevent our clients from taking certain actions and we do not limit our advice to raising objections, but we prepare legally sound and commercially adequate solutions which are easy to implement. “Efficiency is key for us. Whatever we do, we ask ourselves: Is our action relevant and useful for our client?” We take care that the price for our advice is adequate, understandable and transparent in relation to the services rendered by us. We do not leave our clients in the dark about what they should do in our opinion. Instead, we carefully weigh the pros and cons of different courses of action and then give a very clear recommendation. Due to our structure the partners are closely involved with all assignments – the responsible partner covers an assignment from the beginning until the end.
