About us

For several decades we have been providing cross-industry consulting services in the fields of ‘succession’, ‘business start-up’, ‘company takeover’ and ‘company sale’ with a special focus on freelancers and architecture or engineering companies. Within this focus of consulting, we accompany the process of change by designing legal, tax and business aspects together with interdisciplinary associated lawyers, tax advisors and auditors. The adjustment of the process organization, the earning optimization as well as the accompaniment in the onboarding process along with the coaching of our clients and their employees represents our daily routine.

We also focus on the development of national and international franchise-license companies. We adapt foreign franchise or license companies and accompany them in their expansion into the German market. In the area of franchising, we support companies seeking to convert or expand their business idea or a division of their company into a license or franchise system. Due to our interdisciplinary cooperation with tax advisors, auditors and lawyers who also specialize in franchising, we can offer you comprehensive solutions.
