GvW Graf von Westphalen is a partnership of attorneys at law and tax advisors with 160 legal professionals. We are one of Germany’s largest independent law firms with our offices in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt am Main, Hamburgand Munich. We also provide advice to clients around the world from our offices in Istanbul, Shanghai and Brussels and through our membership in several highly respected global networks.
Our independence is the key feature that sets us apart from competing law firms. Our roots extend back to the 19th century. We are not a “legal assembly line” – at our firm, you will work with and continue to work with the partner you know and respect.
We are one of Germany’s top law firms in many legal areas: the professional journal JUVE has listed us as a „leader” in such areas as „customs and foreign trade law” for many years. JUVE also recommends us in the areas of state aid, corporate/M&A, capital investment processes, conflict resolution, energy, food, private construction law, real estate, private equity & venture capital, PPP and project finance, project development, environment and construction, constitutional and administrative law, public procurement, insurance law and distribution. We were nominated as Law Firm of the Year „Mittelstand” and „Regulated Industries” by JUVE in 2017.
