Unsere Anwälte wollten es wissen: Kommt der Wettbewerb Tough Mudder an die Strapazen des Zweiten Juristischen Staatsexamens ran? Wir haben das bunt gemischte GvW-Team vom Referendar bis zum Partner beim Selbstversuch in der Lüneburger Heide mit der Kamera begleitet. Herausgekommen sind neben tollen Bildern von Hindernissen und Matschpfützen die Erkenntnis: Mit einer besseren Vorbereitung wäre mehr drin gewesen...
Wir sind jedenfalls nächstes Jahr wieder als Firmenteam bei Tough Mudder dabei!

Legal clerks at Graf von Westphalen have a wide variety of responsibilities. There is something different every day. Many legal clerks at GvW were trained in the firm. Our training emphasizes having the trainees go through various areas. This provides an early, comprehensive picture about the work of a legal clerk.

What does the regular workday for an attorney in a commercial law firm look like? We accompanied the Hamburg attorney Melanie Eilers for one day with the camera: department meeting, meetings with clients, court hearing – the specialist for construction and architectural law is on the road a lot. The associates also regularly cook together in the bistro. This also involves convincing the other colleagues about the own cooking abilities.  


GvW Graf von Westphalen supports law clerks in preparing for the 2nd state bar exam, including with Kaiser seminars. The law clerks from Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich meet at a GvW office in order to get "fit" for the exam in crash courses.


The Düsseldorf office of GvW is the newest office for the law firm. What started in Düsseldorf Köblick with two desks in 2012 is in the meantime an integrated office with attorneys in the fields of public procurement, construction, energy, customs, cooperate law, M&A and IP. Art is also a special aspect at the office. 


Located in the center of town at the Potsdamer Platz, our Berlin office symbolizes the cohesive, many years of work by our employees in the national capital and other parts of Germany. This is our main office close to the center of politics in which our attorneys contribute also their political competence in addition to their legal skills. 


We moved into our Munich office in the Lenbach Gardens around one year ago. The move was a further step in the positive development and constructive attitude at the office.

Centrally located with good traffic connections between the Munich railway station, the Königsplatz and Stachus, the office is an important address for clients of the firm located in Bavaria as well as international clients and their investments in southern Germany.


Welcome to GvW Graf von Westphalen at Ulmenstraße in the heart of the city.


Juristische Schulung (JuS) and GvW Graf von Westphalen have jointly established the practice exam.  In addition to the special edition with six essay exams by well-known JuS-authors, the practice examination also includes regular exam workshops with practical guides on methodology and the mental situation during testing, topics which are often not adequately treated when preparing for exams. 


"Die Alte Post" is one of the most well-known and historic buildings in Hamburg. We are proud that our Hamburg office has been located in this special property since 2011. 130 people work here directly next to the Hamburg town hall.
