Flick Gocke Schaumburg

When it comes to company succession and trusts advice, it seems Flick Gocke Schaumburg cannot be beaten. The traditional firm has been an undisputed frontrunner for years, and is now leading the pack when it comes to digitalization too: the firm is blazing new and innovative trails with a digital subsidiary launched in fall 2017. For family offices, FGS created its own tax compliance management system that allows a “consolidated wealth” structure for family businesses and highlights risks under tax criminal law early on. At the same time, the firm has steadily rejuvenated and broadened its practice in recent years. Partners like company succession specialists Dr. Christian von Oertzen, Dr. Andreas Söffing or charity law expert Prof. Dr. Stephan Schauhoff have long shaped the market as legal and tax luminaries, advising the country’s most influential families and institutions. This year saw two renowned company succession experts, Dr. Manfred Reich in Frankfurt and Christoph Oenings from Hamburg/Berlin, appointed equity partners – the first not to come from the Bonn head office. FGS is thus sending a very clear signal to its competitors outside the Rheinland.
