“Making a case for somebody else - that is what makes the legal profession so beautiful. Clients entrust me with their interests. That is a privilege, and you must never betray that trust.”

Günes Güntekin

The scope of my practice

At Rassers, I have gained experience in all aspects of business law, with an emphasis on acquisitions, participations and joint ventures, particularly for larger SMEs. I also litigate in corporate and takeover disputes.

Making a case for somebody else

The legal profession is a beautiful profession. You are entrusted with making somebody else's case. I am always strongly aware of the trust that individuals place in me. You must not betray that trust under any circumstances. I always do everything in my power to make the most of my client’s legal position.

Cultural transitions

Many of the files I work on are international in nature. This not only means that a large part of my work is conducted in English but also that I have to be able to identify with individuals from a range of backgrounds. Since I am a product of various cultures myself, I have been adept from an early age at making such ‘transitions’. I often derive great benefit from this in my work.
