How we work
The object of our efforts is to provide our clients with comprehensive legal assistance and advice in both commercial, occupational and private matters.
Thanks to specialization, Höhne, In der Maur & Partner can offer their clients highly experienced experts for most legal areas.
We believe that the attorney is first and foremost a service provider. We are not only a crisis manager, called upon the last moment (although we can relate to that as well), but much more a constant partner and companion of our clients. In this partnership, be it as steady legal advisors, or as experts hired on an ad-hoc basis, we feel qualified to help avoiding conflicts of interest and proactively deal with problems and risks. Conflict management is an essential part of an attorney's practice. We eagerly endeavour to assert the interests of our clients in the courts and before administrative authorities, nevertheless knowing that, more often than not, a judicial solution is (not least because of excessive case lengths) only the second-best.
It is our aim to bring clarity and consistency into complex situations. We want to enable our clients to make sound decisions, albeit we will not hold back our own opinion.
"Clarity and consistency" is also the motto of our fee policy: the client shall be able to foresee and fully understand what services he is paying for and why.
We put special emphasis on the training of our lawyers. We encourage them to do research and write on legal topics; the appearance of our lawyers as lecturers at educational institutions and lectures in their respective fields of expertise, greatly contribute to the reputation of our law firm.
Of likewise importance is the joint discussion of upcoming legal problems and issues. Finally, no document written by our staff leaves the office prior to an in-depth study and examination by the responsible partner, and possibly a detailed discussion with the staff. Our clients can rest assured that their matters are taken care of by the person who is the most qualified and competent in the respective field.
Our law firm is equipped with all the state-of-the-art research tools necessary to meet the high quality standards of our work. Furthermore, it goes without saying that each of our staff has full online access from his or her desk to all Austrian and numerous international legal databases, to the official Austrian-wide Land Register (Grundbuch) and the official Austrian Company Register (Firmenbuch).
