Under the title “Recht kurz” (or “Brief in law”), the two Hamburg-based Partners Dr. Marcus Georg Tischler and Tim Petermann published the first Heuking podcast. In brief episodes of about ten minutes each, the two lawyers give an overview of important legal topics and novelties. The title is the motto: The legal topics covered should be brief and easy to understand, because the podcast is intended to appeal not only to lawyers, but also to non-lawyers.
