Many of our clients see Rödl & Partner as an ideal partner for their international growth. We have a history of success which becomes clear to everybody working with us. We’re proud of what we have achieved as entrepreneurs. We believe this is precisely why many true entrepreneurs like our approach. 

Rödl & Partner was founded in 1977 in Nuremberg, Germany, by Bernd Rödl, a German solicitor who later also qualified as a German chartered accountant. 

The firm became a well-known regional and national practice in Germany, expanding into East Germany when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989. We were one of the first West German law and consulting firms to do so. Our first office outside Germany opened in 1989 in Prague, followed by offices in Budapest and Warsaw in 1990 and 1991. Rödl & Partner rapidly expanded across central and eastern Europe. We were the first western law firm in many post-communist countries. Soon after our central and eastern Europe expansion, Rödl & Partner became the first non-Chinese firm to obtain a license to offer both legal services and accounting services in the People’s Republic of China. Today, Rödl & Partner has offices in almost all industrially important countries.

Worldwide we can rely on a broad spectrum of professionals with extensive expert as well as cultural knowledge. Our partners are actively cooperating with our clients, because we believe that truly high-quality service can be provided only if we and our partners partake in the everyday activities of our clients and understand their needs.
