Trust and transparency
Working with clients is built on trust. Following an exploratory discussion in which we get to know each other we talk about issues, tasks and economic goals.
Should we convince you in this initial meeting, the next step is to agree on the fee. We are committed to offering you a balanced price-performance ratio. This transparency allows you to keep track of costs. There are no surprises.


Competence and fairness
We blend professional expertise and long-standing experience with social competence. The team at the law firm Schaffrath & Metzmacher takes the individual concerns of each client seriously and listens carefully. A high level of commitment is used to develop a solution that suits both legal and personal needs.

Also on offer is strategic and forward-looking consulting enabling you to have an overview of even complex situations. Applying dynamic working methods, we achieve short processing and completion times. Even when dealing robustly with the other side, we ensure fairness in our interaction with all parties involved.


As an alternative to legal representation in our specialist areas, you can also entrust us with out-of-court dispute resolution (mediation). This can save you both money and time.

Our Location

Church of Our Lady in Dresden


The Saxon state capital of Dresden is not only an important service and administration centre, it is also home to a large number of medium-sized companies from a wide range of sectors. Dresden enjoys a reputation as a hub of high-tech industry and science beyond the German border. This is where the heart of the European microelectronics industry beats and where numerous start-ups thrive in the most diverse fields of innovation. This makes Dresden the economically strongest city in the Free State and at the same time the economic leader in East Germany.

Our office is run with a deeply personal touch, so you will find an atmosphere that deliberately contrasts with the business concept of much larger law firms. Our clients are the focus of our attention – and they know our team.
