Business Law in all its facets

Individual and at the same time comprehensive advice by highly qualified specialists - this has been the philosophy of MELCHERS Rechtsanwälte since the founding of the firm in 1973. In this spirit, our approximately 50 lawyers currently advise our clients in all areas of national and international business law.

Our clients are entrepreneurs and medium-sized companies as well as public clients. MELCHERS' range of advice naturally includes the "classical" areas of commercial law such as corporate, commercial and labour law, but also fields such as real estate and construction law, public commercial law as well as commercial and criminal tax law. In addition, our experienced lawyers can provide our clients with competent advice in highly specialised areas such as gambling law, data protection law and architectural law. The notary's office in the Berlin office of MELCHERS completes our comprehensive legal services.

Depending on our clients' needs, we work in differently composed teams in order to provide them with the best possible legal support. Nevertheless, the client's own personal contact person always remains the same. He's the one with the threads running together. He keeps a permanent eye on the overall situation of the client.

Many legal issues in companies are closely linked to business and tax issues. Therefore, we at MELCHERS attach particular importance to close cooperation with our clients' auditors and tax advisors in order to offer comprehensive and holistic advice in this area as well. Having numerous contacts we are able to easily find a respective auditor or tax advisor for clients if necessary.

Our consulting activities are basically aimed at avoiding legal conflicts in advance. If, however, a legal dispute cannot be avoided we do, of course, represent our clients out of court and in court. 

The Heidelberg Head Office of MELCHERS and the Mannheim office are located in the economically strong Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. With our offices in the financial metropolis of Frankfurt and in the German capital Berlin we are represented in the nationally and internationally important financial and trading centres. We advise clients throughout Germany from all locations.

As a member of Transatlantic Law International and Labor Law Plus, we provide seamless services in Germany and cross-border on German issues to multinationals and other cross-border companies on a regular basis. As a member of Ally Law, an international network of renowned medium-sized law firms, we are able to provide clients with highly qualified advice in all economic centres of the world too.

In addition to their client work, many of our attorneys are also scientifically active or have a teaching assignment. Through numerous publications and close contacts to universities, our lawyers not only provide information on current legal developments and comment on them, but also participate in them in a creative way.
