A specialist in commercial, corporate and tax law, he was set on the legal course by his interest in economic interactions between law and business and a strong sense of justice. A Diploma in European Law, a Bachelor of Law from University College London and certification as an M&A Advisor round off his wide-ranging, international qualifications and make him the ideal advisor and guide for companies worldwide.
For me, BUILDING A PERSONAL AND TRUSTFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH MY CLIENTS IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE.
Freedom and perseverance - two components that I inevitably associate with the sea and kite sports. And it is precisely this mix that I also live in my everyday business life.
TWO DECADES OF EXPERTISE
With about two decades of experience in handling complex M&A transactions and his dual qualification as a German lawyer and English solicitor, he specialises in cross-border business activities. He also has extensive expertise in corporate and group restructuring and the resulting tax consequences, as well as insolvency matters and contract drafting. His numerous qualifications and years of experience make Urs a confident and assertive negotiator who is a pleasure to have on one's side.
His national and international clients include family businesses, private equity companies and family offices, but also foreign companies, which he advises profitably on inbound investments in Germany. The fact that he enjoys helping his clients to achieve their goals - whether in court, in negotiations or as an advisor - is immediately apparent to Urs during the exchange. For him, building a personal and trusting relationship with his clients is of utmost importance. The same goes for his team.
URS' AREAS OF EXPERTISE
A RELAXED RELATIONSHIP WITH EACH OTHER IS BENEFICIAL FOR MIND AND SOCIETY
His vision of a law firm with flat hierarchies, personal and cordial cooperation and broad, concentrated expertise has become reality with Reef. His passion for surfing, especially kitesurfing, also inspired the maritime flair of the law firm, which is reflected not only in the working methods and design, but also in the relaxed and personal interaction with staff, cooperation partners and clients.
