Profile and self image

Preserving tradition,
shaping the future.

For almost a century, Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz has been one of the most reputable German corporate law firms. We advise domestic and international clients in nearly all areas of corporate and commercial law with currently 100 attorneys.

Our Roots

The roots of Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz reach back more than 100 years. The first generation of partners included such notable jurists as Heinrich Kronstein, Wilhelm Zutt and Karl Geiler some of whom already advised on noteworthy mergers, such as the merger of Daimler and Benz, during the «golden twenties» and advised on major antitrust issues. They shaped the theory and practice of modern commercial and corporate law in Germany like few others. The close conjunction of legal practice and scholarly activities, which has been a distinguishing feature of quality of our firm, allows us to provide our clients with legal advice on the highest level in both transactions and disputes or litigation as well as in providing legal opinions.

Our Profile

The main focus of our practice is on corporate law, M&A, capital markets, banking & finance, labor law, antitrust law, intellectual property, competition law, business succession, trust law and public and administrative law as well as tax law and insolvency law. Over the last years, our clients included 14 of the 30 enterprises listed on the DAX. In addition, our clients include leading industrial and trade enterprises, banks, insurance companies and financial services providers as well as large family-owned businesses and wealthy private clients.

Our Self-Image

It is our conviction that the quality of legal advice does not primarily depend on the size of a firm but on the qualification of its attorneys. Aside from their exceptional expertise in their respective fields which they have usually proven in scholarly publications, our attorneys have a special insight into commercial and economic connections and requirements. This allows us to develop individually tailored, sustainable and pragmatic solutions with regard to complex legal issues.

The central element of our self-image is the uncompromising standard of quality of our legal advice in conjunction with close connections between clients and the responsible partner. In addition, we value working in teams of appropriate size whose composition is determined in accordance with the requirements of the respective matter.

Our self-image includes an open corporate culture in an unprejudiced working environment. Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz is therefore committed to the Charta of Diversity, which promotes the recognition, appreciation and inclusion of diversity in the world of work. The open-mindedness and appreciation of the diverse personalities of our employees is one of the basic principles of our firm.
