Dr. Sabine Stetter, Managing Partner
Where do you get your motivation to fight for your clients?

“I have assimilated the concept that there is no such things as a hopeless case. For me the keys to legally successful activity are expertise, creativity and tenacity. I worked as a lawyer in Prof. Gunter Widmaier’s law practice for four years and sought reasons why legal rulings should not be allowed to stand, even though such rulings had been made by legal experts in the district court. This left its mark on me. And it is hugely motivating. Each of our clients can rely on the fact that we tackle each and every case with this attitude, whether in Germany or abroad. Nothing is impossible ‒ we always find a solution.”
