Good ideas need a breeding ground. You have a great new business idea or have already founded your company – then every day is a new challenge. We want to be your partner – regarding know-how and to advise you and your new enterprise in all legal matters of entrepreneurship as well as financially. We will help you at every point, from Seed Financing up to the complete maturity of your company. We won´t accompany the development of the company as a consultant who gives good tips from the side line, but as a partner who is on the field with you and exclusively focuses on the company´s success. Owing to our contract design we are dynamically aligned with your company, your needs and your performance. We and our network will also gladly invest in promising business ideas and will share the risk with you as partners.

It is the common objective of all Weisenheimer Legal partners to comprehensively advise their clients both with their legal special knowledge as well as their long-term professional expertise, which was gained both in large national and international law firms as well as in companies.

In combination with our lean company structure this enables a personalised client service with a strong entrepreneurial awareness. Every partner is an entrepreneur him or herself, familiar with the daily challenges of founding a company and entrepreneurship in general.

We understand your needs and your entrepreneurial considerations. Especially when it comes to the cooperation with lawyers´ offices. Here, too, our cooperation is based on a strong partnership with our clients and we also offer innovative solutions in order to perfectly support your company. This applies both to national companies as well as clients who operate internationally.

We understand and speak a clear language. Due to many years of experience in the financing sector, we have best contacts with financing partners who suit you optimally and can also offer the according network.

You have built up and established your company over a long period of time and now want to ensure that there is an orderly transition. With our experience and our network, we will help you starting from the search for a suitable successor up to the succession of your company and will thereby achieve a fruitful win-win situation for both you and the successor.

Within our Weisenheimer network, we also like to include specialist support in order to holistically simplify all aspects of the business succession.
