Our firm

Nothing combines business with pleasure better than winning a court case.

The now Frankfurt-based law firm DANCKELMANN UND KERST Rechtsanwälte Partnerschaft mbB was originally founded in Berlin in the 1920s by Dr. Bernhard Danckelmann, co-founder of the standard commentary on the German Civil Code (BGB) known today under the name “Grüneberg” and the “Neue Juristische Wochenschrift”, and has enjoyed many years of success in a number of different areas of commercial law.

DANCKELMANN UND KERST practices law throughout the Federal Republic of Germany, and even abroad, as a member of the renowned Mackrell International Law Network.

Our firm is primarily known for its work in protecting industrial property, especially in the areas of competition and trademark law, copyright law, antitrust law, and telecommunications and media law. Our clients are counseled and represented in legal proceedings by lawyers who have been praised time and again in the “JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms”. They also benefit from the experience that our firm has acquired in the many landmark cases it has litigated in recent decades. For these reasons, it is not surprising that the high-level expertise of DANCKELMANN UND KERST has been praised in JUVE and received positive reviews in relevant publications such as “Kanzleien in Deutschland”, “European Legal Experts” and “Best Lawyers Germany”.
