About SKW Schwarz Rechtsanwlte

As a leader among independent corporate law firms, we have 5 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.
International Network

For us, internationality is not a formal criterion we try to meet with a wealth of offices abroad but a way to describe our attitude. As many of our clients do not limit their business activities to Germany, we ensure that we can represent their interests in any country where they need us to do so. Our membership in the international law firm association TerraLex, which was selected as the Global Network of the Year at The Lawyer's annual European Awards program in London in March 2018, and our cooperation with selected partner firms enable us to offer our clients the best possible support around the world at any time.

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 our 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.
Our history

SKW Schwarz at Wittelsbacherplatz is one of the oldest law firms in Munich. Founded in 1949, the long-established law firm Schwarz Schniewind Kelwing merged with the Berlin law firm Kurtze Jander & Partner. Further mergers with Frankfurt, Hamburg and a new office in Dusseldorf led to SKW Schwarz Rechtsanw?lte in 2009.
