Our firm

„Notare am Gänsemarkt“, a firm long-established in Hamburg.

Five notaries, one notary administrator and well-above 90 staff in the heart of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, united by but one objective: To deliver legal excellence with the highest level of professional services.

We are highly specialized in real estate, corporate law as well as in family and inheritance planning matters. We advise large corporates, private equity funds, venture capitalists, banks, insurance companies and public law entities and, of course, private individuals, assisting our clients with all their notarial needs regarding real estate and corporate transactions, family law matters (pre-nuptial and divorce agreements) and inheritance planning.

As impartial publicly-appointed advisers we guarantee utmost confidentiality and reliability. The economic perspective of legal issues is second nature to us. Lawyers, tax advisers and accountants, realtors, banks and M&A advisers count on us as sophisticated, focused partners in all notarial matters.

Our firm is at your disposal for all notarial aspects of real estate law. Our services range from straightforward property or condominium sale and purchase agreements to complex neighborhood development and infrastructure projects. We pride ourselves on bringing particular experience to the table in property development and portfolio transactions and with regard to the specific needs of regulated market participants.

Our firm assist its clients in all matters under corporate and commercial law covering the entire life-span of a business, starting with the incorporation and continuing with financing rounds, share purchase agreements, IPOs and inheritance planning. We notarize shareholder meetings of private and public companies and provide expert advice on transformations, business-splits and the change of legal form.

We assist with the drafting of wills/codicils and inheritance contracts, advise on the establishment of family or charitable trusts (Stiftungen) and matters of corporate succession planning. Taking heed of tax and corporate law requirements, we suggest appropriate mechanisms to implement your wishes for the planning of your estate. Notaries are authorized to certify inheritance agreements, including the waiver of rights to an inheritance or a compensation in lieu of an inheritance.

As notaries we are deeply familiar with living wills and related powers of attorney. By signing such a document, you authorize another person to act on your behalf with regard to personal and financial matters. A living will informs medical professionals of your wishes regarding treatment.

Our notary's office is one of the top addresses in Hamburg for corporate and real estate law, but also for private individuals with a need for regulation in inheritance, family and corporate law matters. Would you like to actively support our successful team of five notaries, one notary administrator and over 90 employees? Then we should get to know each other!
