About Us

National and international clients trust in the competence and experience of our lawyers, tax advisors, and notaries – for more than 50 years.

With more than 400 lawyers, tax advisors and notaries providing legal services across eight offices in Germany, HEUKING is one of the major commercial law firms in Germany. Founded more than 50 years ago, HEUKING is one of Germany's top 20 law firms in terms of annual revenues according to industry analyst JUVE.

The spectrum of our legal advice ranges from German and foreign medium-sized companies to international (including listed) large corporations in all matters of commercial law. Another focus of our client support lies in public law in which we counsel decision-makers on all levels of administration.

National law firm with international network

Providing legal services that are independent

HEUKING is counseling in German law in the major business centers and consciously decided against an international merger in order to guarantee its own independence and that of its clients.

The law firm provides legal services to German and foreign clients, whom it advises on foreign law matters. In doing so, the partnership is embedded in an international network of law firms with which it cooperates on a "good friends" basis without being tied to exclusivity agreements.

HEUKING has found its strategic positioning with a broad range of expertise, strong areas of specialization, a nationwide presence and a focus on advising medium-sized companies and the public sector.
It regularly succeeds in responding to changes in the advisory needs of its clients and being more than the sum of its parts."
