MELCHERS is a full-service law firm with offices across Germany, in Heidelberg, Frankfurt/Main, Mannheim and Berlin. With about 50 in-house, commercially oriented, specialized attorneys, we advise clients in all national and international business law.
We regularly represent major national and international enterprises, medium-sized companies, public clients, private-equity firms, startups and high-net-worth individuals.
Established in 1973, MELCHERS ensures that partners actively contribute to client matters rather than merely supervising associates’ work. We achieve this objective by keeping a high partner-to-associate ratio. We attach great importance to both individual and highly qualified legal advice, so each client has his permanent contact partner who assembles specialized teams depending on the special needs of the current case. With Ally Law, MELCHERS also advises national and international clients whose business interests bring them to this important center of EU and global trade and finance.
Our practice focuses on all corporate law, including mergers, acquisitions, and private-equity transactions, finance and capital markets, employment, property and construction, intellectual property and information technology law, data protection, general commercial law, insolvency, product liability and litigation. MELCHERS also supplies legal services in commercial criminal law and tax criminal law— in court an out of court.
Our experience in specific fields such as press and media law and gaming law has been recognized in various industry journals, including Juve.de and various publications of Chambers and Partners.
Besides our representation of clients, many of our lawyers lecture at universities. In response to frequent requests, we also present at educational seminars for other practitioners in legal and other areas of specialization.
