About us

LAWTREE helps entrepreneurs, companies, governments and private individuals when they need legal support. Although conducting legal proceedings before the courts is obviously an essential part of our duties, it is not our starting point.

We prefer to assume an advisory role and always work pragmatically towards the best solution for your business and your specific situation. LAWTREE tries to translate complex legal regulations into practical advice that is tailored to your business.

LAWTREE strives to become a strategic partner in your business operations and focuses on long-term collaboration. Together we look for opportunities and anticipate threats and risks to your business. LAWTREE combines know-how and experience with flexibility, cost efficiency and transparency. That way, you always know what to expect from our collaboration.
