With our offices in Cologne, Freiburg and Frankfurt am Main we are firmly anchored in regional Germany and are excellently networked. The offices enjoy a long tradition: Prof. Dr. Friedrich Graf von Westphalen established the Cologne office in 1973. The Freiburg office's roots go back to 1924 when the publishing lawyer, Prof. Dr. Walter Bappert, first opened his law firm in Staufen, which he then relocated to Freiburg in 1926. The youngest office to join is the Frankfurt am Main office, which we founded in 2014 with lateral recruits, who had been long-established in the Rhine-Main region for many years. The Freiburg office looked abroad from early on and established an office in Brussels, where the EU Commission is based, in 1991. In addition we maintain our own office for trademark law in Alicante, where the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) is based.

In the future markets China, India, Brazil and in Turkey we have a presence in the form of a cooperation with leading local law firms. In China we work together with EunaCon Law in Shanghai, in Brazil with Felsberg Advogados from São Paulo, in Turkey with Moroglu Arseven from Istanbul and in India with law firms anchored locally in the economic centres of Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad/Bangalore and Kolkata.

We also provide our clients with comprehensive advice and support throughout "the rest of the world": Together with qualified advisers "on the spot", law firms we have personally known for many years from working together, with whom we regularly exchange ideas, on whose quality we can rely and who offer our clients the same service they have come to expect from Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner. You can find out more about our services abroad here under International.
