LGBT Friendly Law Firms in Germany, Austria and Britain

Although Germany and Britain are comparatively liberal and progressive societies, we are fully aware that the struggle against hate, discrimination and bigotry is far from over.

Our firm of German and British lawyers supports openness, diversity and equal rights for all sexual orientations and gender identities.

We welcome clients from the LGBT community both in Germany and the UK and we provide legal advice in all areas of law, from family law (e.g. same sex marriage, same sex couple adoptions), the preparation of (German or international) last wills, estate and succession planning for same sex couples to – where necessary – anti-discrimination measures at the workplace or elsewhere.
