Managing Director Prof Dr. Volker Römermann tells us more about its offering. ith origins dating back to 1962, the focus of the Römermann Rechtsanwälte’s activity was initially in Hanover and in the areas of company law, insolvency law and the law of the liberal professions. The Berlin location was added in 2003 and the Hamburg location in 2007. Hamburg has also been the company’s headquarters since the law firm was transformed into a stock corporation in 2009. It now operates from various locations throughout Germany, including Hamburg, Hanover, Berlin, Munich and Erfurt and acts for companies, entrepreneurs and lawyers/tax advisors/auditors, offering the levels of service of a large law firm, combined with personal advice and representation in a medium-sized company structure. The initial core competencies of Römermann Rechtsanwälte have been steadily expanded so that the know-how has covered the entire spectrum of commercial law for many years now, in addition to the original focus on the professional law of lawyers, notaries, tax advisors and auditors. When it comes to international consulting mandates, the firm cooperates closely with various foreign partner law firms, but also has extensive linguistic know-how and correspond in English, French, Spanish, Greek, Turkish, Russian, Ukrainian and Chinese. In addition to legal advice, Römermann Rechtsanwälte works closely with the management consultancy Römermann Consulting GmbH on advisory issues and with Römermann Insolvenzverwalter Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH on insolvency law issues. A cornerstone of the philosophy of Römermann Rechtsanwälte AG is to gain creative solutions through active scientific analysis and the lawyers of the firm are academically renowned, with Professor Dr Volker Römermann, Managing Director, having published more than 30 books and countless articles in professional journals. Volker also teaches at the Humboldt University of Berlin in addition to practicing law. “A law firm gains trust not only through the working lawyers. As a rule, potential clients become aware of us through recommendations, publications and lectures, however even the acceptance of the first telephone call or the welcoming at the door are business cards of every law firm. Such tasks cannot be valued highly enough in terms of their effect on client,” explains Volker, speaking of how the firm recruits new clients. “Our talents often do not have a straightforward curriculum vitae but tried out and become acquainted with various things and the W Jan21295 consciously decided to continue their career pan with us. The culture is correspondingly open and mixed.” On March 12th 2020, the German Chancellor announced the imminent cuts in public life due to the Covid-19 pandemic which was still very much in its infancy at this point. One week later, the law firmRömermann Rechtsanwälte started to work intensively on the new laws. “This has resulted in six books on Covid-19 legal topics and over 200 webinars for clients, business managers, lawyers and tax advisors in 2020 alone,” Volker elaborates. “The situation has led to a significant increase in efficiency through increased video conferencing. Numerous inquiries result from the new legal issues, which are now a focus of our activities.” The firm has since prepared itself for increasing demand, not only since Covid-19, but even before by the consistently expanding areas of reorganisation, restructuring, and insolvency. “We are now also capable of handling larger and international restructuring cases and together with many years of experience, and a high level of service orientation, our recognised scientific expertise forms the indispensable triad for successful advice.” Contact: Prof. Dr. Volker Römermann, CSP Address: Ständehausstraße 10, 30159 Hannover, Germany Tel.: (0511) 32 66 0-0 Website:
