About us

When it comes to providing legal consultancy services in economic and real estate matters, the attorneys of LJRR can draw on decades of advisory and transactional experience gained at major international law firms. Additionally, our many years of serving in top executive positions at various German companies and global enterprises have given us broad managerial expertise. This combination enables us to provide sound and incisive legal advice while also keeping an eye on the practical aspects that often make a key difference in the real world.

LJRR was established in 2005 as the spin-off of a major, globally active law firm.

When the firm was founded together with the attorney and notary, Nikolaus Ley, who passed away in 2015, the partners shared a clear understanding of the qualities that lawyers must bring to the table: they must be trustworthy; they must understand the needs of their clients; and they must have excellent legal expertise in both theory and practice. This mission continues to guide our firm’s partners today: Dr. Volkmar Jesch, Klaus Racky, Dr. Frank Roitzsch, and Dr. Arnfried Krause.

In 2016, we significantly expanded the scope of our consulting expertise by taking on several associate partners with many years of managerial experience gained in a range of key business sectors, both in Germany and abroad.

Our consultancy services

As legal advisors, we combine an entrepreneurial outlook with wide-ranging experience in practically all fields of commercial law. This makes our portfolio of advisory services just as varied as the comprehensive needs of our clients, be they private enterprises or public institutions.

Thanks to our broad-based consulting approach, we can also serve as your “external legal department”.

  • Real estate law

    Are you planning to sell or purchase individual properties or entire real estate portfolios? Pursuing a development project? Or are you planning a joint venture that needs to be properly structured? LJRR will support you in all phases of your real estate activities, from the due diligence and contract drafting phases to project financing. We can also help with distressed real estate projects, e.g. by assisting with foreclosure proceedings or the assessment of real estate appraisals.

  • Corporate law

    The attorneys and notaries of LJRR provide advisory and notarial services in all aspects of corporate law, starting with the foundation of a company, company succession, mergers & acquisitions, corporate transformations, restructurings/reorganizations, and capital acquisition measures. We provide supervision of annual general meetings – also those of exchange-listed stock companies – and prepare the resolutions to be adopted by the shareholders and/or governing bodies. Whether you are a shareholder or a member of the representative or supervisory body of an enterprise, you can rely on us to effectively safeguard your interests.

  • Capital markets law

    We advise stock companies incorporated under German law as well as European limited companies (SE, Societas Europea) on all topics of capital markets law. These include IPO structuring, drafting of the prospectus, exchange-listing procedures, and the associated follow-up obligations (e.g. ad-hoc disclosures, takeover legalities), as well as capital increases, share repurchases, and ongoing corporate-law consultancy.

  • Contract structuring

    Our core areas of competence include the structuring, review, and evaluation of complex contractual relationships across all entrepreneurial fields, also those with cross-border implications. As our client, you will benefit from the combination of legal and managerial experience that our attorneys bring to the table. It is this synergy that allows LJRR to provide you with comprehensive, targeted advice in a wide range of fields, including renewable energies, plant engineering, manufacturing, sales & distribution, and joint ventures.

  • Investment advice in Germany and abroad

    Whether you are a German enterprise wishing to access markets outside Europe or a foreign company looking to establish itself on the German market, LJRR will provide competent, comprehensive legal advice in all aspects of entrepreneurship. Beginning with the selection of legal advisors abroad and overseeing their activities, to finding suitable financing options, integrating partner enterprises – e.g. via joint ventures or company/project acquisitions – to assisting with compliance topics and export controls, we will be at your side throughout the entire process.

  • Representing your interests

    You can rely on us to protect your legal interests as we help you to navigate complex contractual negotiations, claim-management activities, disputes out of court and litigation, arbitral proceedings, dealings with government agencies, etc. In the process, we will provide you with expert advice based on careful analysis; this will be oriented towards finding effective and workable solutions to any and all disputes involving commercial law.
