Herfurth & Partner is the German member firm of Alliuris, our international alliance of independent law firms(www.alliuris.org).
We founded Alliuris in 2003 with 10 law firms in Europe. Today, the group has 32 offices with 500 business lawyers, mainly in Europe, as well as in the USA, Brazil, Russia, China and India. The management is based in Hanover. Ulrich Herfurth, attorney-at-law, initiated the foundation and has led the group as Chairman and Managing Director since then.
We have been working together successfully in practice for many years, with some offices as far back as 1990. The Alliuris partners have experience in all important areas of commercial law to cover the needs of medium-sized companies and group subsidiaries on an equal footing. The Alliuris partners are familiar with the needs of international clients, including the different perspectives of foreign clients.
The special feature of the Alliuris Group is the unusually close personal connection between the law firms. Unlike other networks, the representatives of the law firms meet personally three times a year for exchanges and professional meetings. As a result, the cooperation is as short as in an international consultancy group – but rather better because of the personal, trusting connection. Unlike global law firms, Alliuris does not operate a costly umbrella organisation, but avoids overhead costs.
The group is organised as an international association under Belgian law (A.S.B.L.); the legal seat is in Brussels. Mandates are taken on by the client’s law firm, which integrates or coordinates the services of the Alliuris partners abroad.
