Dr. Thomas Höhne

Managing partner

The founder of the law office. In his early years, when he was still an all-rounder, two areas of focus started to take shape: Information and media law on the one side and association and assembly law on the other. It’s no coincidence that he was the co-author of several leading legal works on these topics. What he wishes for: “To have more time for photography and sailing.”





I forget most of what I read; but I know that it contributes no less to the conservation of my mind on that account.

(Georg Christoph Lichtenberg)

We feel the same when writing our books.
