Our Firm

Legal Minds with Character

At SCHMITZ KNOTH, our lawyers combine expertise, technical know-how, and longstanding experience into a dynamic corporate law firm. We are particularly proud of the standard we set in the personal and individual relationships we build with our clients. This enables us to provide our clients with individual advice for every situation they may find themselves in. Legal advice at SCHMITZ KNOTH is all about people and about persistent contact with your lawyer who will act passionately in the interest and defence of you and your company.

Who We Are

SCHMITZ KNOTH was founded in 1953 in Bonn, the former capital of Germany. Today, it operates offices in Bonn and Berlin to provide its clients with comprehensive national service. We focus on advising our clients in contentious and non-contentious matters in all matters relating to corporate law, nationally and internationally. We are proud to count both leading companies and SMEs as our clients, among which you will find pharma, media and IT, insurance, and financial services companies.

Our Values

SCHMITZ KNOTH provides more than mere legal advice; we understand our task to be your personal advisor, always aiming to create excellent solutions based on common values. Our lawyers always treat clients individually. We act forcefully, but always with far sight, sensibility, and skill.

Our Partners
Since its inception, SCHMITZ KNOTH has collaborated closely with accountants, tax consultants, and other distinguished colleagues. In our network of partners, we ensure that our clients are not just advised, but are able to attain their goals, whether they be commercial and legal, with precision and speed. At every time and at every place – in all major jurisdictions and in international transactions.

Offices
With offices in Bonn and Berlin, SCHMITZ KNOTH is optimally positioned to provide contentious legal services in different national jurisdictions, comprehensively and at short notice if necessary. It also enables us to provide non-contentious services in the most efficient manner possible to serve our nationwide client roster.

Story
SCHMITZ KNOTH lawyers are individuals who use their individual strengths to assist their clients. Great legal advice is not just a statement of the law but requires us to develop a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses and goals, to render judgment in a structured, honest, and steadfast manner, and to develop practical and individual legal solutions that we present our clients in understandable language. We show character in order to help our clients succeed. We show integrity in order to be open and authentic. We remain human to analyse individual needs and to make them reality. SCHMITZ KNOTH lawyers prove their worth and individuality at every level. No matter the consequences.
