JUVE Rheinland Legal Practice of the Year 2004

Sina · Maassen:

In recent years, this traditional Aachen practice has overcome the most difficult process for all medium-sized legal practices - the generation change. And not only did they cope with it seamlessly, but they were able to emerge from it even stronger. The practice is praised by clients not only for its competence, but also for its service (for instance, flexibility and “careful and correct” invoicing). Sina · Maassen has been able to maintain its excellent position in the region and today they compete with a modern structure. With both young managing partners, Kirsten Bäumel – established tax lawyer – and Susanne Meyer – the responsibility moved on to the next generation. At the same time, a consistent internal structure developed, for instance, the concentration of appeal briefs on two lawyers. With Dr. Otfried Guillaume, who is regarded as “one of the leading lawyers here” (competitor), and Dr. Kurt Vogel (planning and building laws and regulations), the practice has other renowned partners at its disposal, whose expertise has been acknowledged by clients.

With the current market presence, the practice has succeeded in using the critical phase, following the retirement of its namesake, Dr. Peter Sina, to its advantage – and has silenced skeptics.
