Legislative practice

Legislative Practice

Our lawyers advise public sector clients and associations in connection with the legislative process. We bring many years of experience to the table in drafting and assessing (draft) legislation. Our firm's lawyers are regularly invited to attend parliamentary hearings on their various areas of particular expertise. We ensure that we are able to advise clients on up‐to‐the‐minute legislative issues thanks to our close connections with legal academia and policymakers.

Our areas of expertise

  • The assessment and support of draft legislation
  • Representing the interests of clients in primary and secondary legislative processes


We advise ministries of the German federal government and the German Länder as well as associations on matters of environmental, transport and fiscal law, for example on “CCS technology” (proposed bill on CO2 capture), on the Recycling Management Act (Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz) (privatisation of domestic waste management), EU General Data Protection Regulation, on the implementation of EU environmental Directives and on legislation dealing with stabilisation of the financial markets.
