Hengeler Mueller is dedicated to absolute quality of legal advice and the highest standards of service, delivering the most creative and efficient solutions designed to optimise clients' business objectives. The prerequisite: a true, independent and homogeneous partnership of professionals, entrepreneurial in thinking and handling and international in education, training and practice. Cultivating an in-depth knowledge and expertise in a wide spectrum of business law matters, lawyers at Hengeler Mueller establish for each transaction result-oriented and cost-effective teams – interactively in various fields of practice – tailor-made for client requirements.
Hengeler Mueller's clients include major German, European and US entities, notably over the last years 22 of the DAX-30, 31 of the EuroSTOXX-50 and 14 of the 30 Dow Jones Industrial Index as well as leading private equity investors. Furthermore, Hengeler Mueller's broad client base comprises other listed (including MDAX and SDAC) and non-listed companies (including family-owned enterprises) in Germany, Europe and worldwide.

Hengeler Mueller believes strongly that crossborder service of the highest quality can best be provided by independent firms, upholding their own partnership of professionals and thus strengthening their respective brands by mutual commitment to absolute standards of service. The firm's co-operation with preeminent firms in major jurisdictions on cross border matters is far more than a mere 'network' or 'referral relationship'. Through integrated teams, clients have access to international legal services that are client focused, cost-effective and result-oriented. Hengeler Mueller's success in cross border representations demonstrates that integrated teams give clients what they want: seamless handling of the transaction from beginning to end and legal advice of unsurpassed quality. In any given matter, Hengeler Mueller will choose the lawyers from each jurisdiction to be included in the integrated team in consultation with the client (client focused) – keeping in mind the requirements of the matter (result oriented). The result is a tailor-made team of the best lawyers from the relevant jurisdictions, with clear management responsibilities and no unnecessary duplication of work (cost-effective). The client will liaise with a single partner contact and receive a single invoice. For decades, Hengeler Mueller has been working intensively with Slaughter and May (UK) in addition to BonelliErede (Italy), Bredin Prat (France), Uría Menéndez (Spain), De Brauw Blackstone Westbroeck (The Netherlands) and further renowned European firms. Hengeler Mueller's long established relationships to top law firms in the US continue to be a focal point of its international presence. In recent years, the firm has expanded its cooperation with leading law firms in China, India, Russia and other countries with rapidly growing economies. Clients are able to call on integrated teams accustomed to working together as a unit. Hengeler Mueller has established with the above firms standing practice groups in all relevant areas of work and industry sectors; they pool precedents, knowhow and expertise, engage in lawyer training programmes, implement a continuous partner programme of secondments involving both partners and associates and maintain compatible IT systems. The described co-operation is, in the interests of the client, non-exclusive. If the client wishes to work with a certain firm, Hengeler Mueller teams up with the firm of the client's choice. Hengeler Mueller neither imposes law firms on clients nor cross-sells the services of branch offices. Given that the firm does not export one single approach, integrated teams continue to find great favour among clients and demonstrate a high degree of success.
