Law unconventionally

Thorsten Walter

Creativity is a virtue one can definitely expect from a lawyer.

However, law is not static. Law meets individual life situations. For this reason, creativity is indispensable in order to find appropriate solutions for legal problems. Clichéd concepts are out of the question for lawyers who take their clients and their problems seriously.

Unconventional approaches and foresighted advice usually lead to extraordinarily good results. This is my claim – and this is what my clients appreciate.
