Legal notes

The Firm

The law firm Zwanzig Hacke Meilke & Partner looks back on over forty years of tradition and experience in legal services. All partners are dedicated to the values which have always characterized the firm and its founders: clear focus on the clients’ interests, highest standards of professional quality, personal availability and responsiveness, determination, diligence and passion for the clients’ goals. Important milestones in the firm’s history were the merger of Jürgen Zwanzig, Klaus Peter Hacke and Dr. Jörg Debelius in 1990, the opening of the office in Leipzig with Peter Meilke in the same year and the further growth by the partners Carsten Sewtz (1996), Joachim Hacke (2001), Dr. Rainer Meusel and Rüdiger Meusel (2002), 

Dr. Andreas Hacke (2005) and Dr. Felix Tietmeyer (2010).

Focus Areas

The firm advises enterprises and entrepreneurs in all important legal aspects. The focus lies on commercial and corporate law as well as on labour law. Further, the firm specializes on the resolution of commercial and corporate disputes, as well in negotiations and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms (such as mediation) as in litigation and arbitration proceedings.


For many years the firm’s clients have included well-known companies from different industries, in

particular, architecture, finance, construction and engineering, internet, logistics and transport, metal processing, media, pharma, steel, telecommunications, textiles, insurance and advertising.  

Network and cooperation

The firm holds close ties to colleagues from adjacent professions (e.g. tax advisors, certified accountants, notaries public, specialist lawyers with other focus areas), allowing to provide services to clients also beyond its own spectrum. Further, the firm is member of the Intercontinental Grouping of Accountants and Lawyers (IGAL). This enables the firm to make contacts quickly and efficiently with firms of lawyers, auditors 

and tax advisors outside Germany in all economically important countries of the world and therefore guarantee all-round legal and tax advice for clients also in international matters. In addition, partners of the firm speak English, French, Spanish, Dutch, Russian and Czech.
