On October 1st 1996 Eckart Brödermann founded the law firm Brödermann as a spin-off of a large German law firm. It soon became Brödermann & Jahn growing a reputation in its own right. It has operated from its present offices in Neuer Wall, Hamburg, since 1998.

Prof. Dr. Eckart Brödermann, educated in France, the United States and Germany, established the dynamic and creative law firm, joined in December 1997 by Dr Erhard Jahn (with whom he had already worked since 1990) and progressed to the great firm that is Brödermann & Jahn today.

From the beginning, the firm has concentrated on international projects and transactions. Initially starting in 1996 with a few clients in Germany, Europe and the USA, the firm rapidly expanded so that now at any one time it has projects with contacts in over 25 legal jurisdictions around the globe with mandates from all over the world.

The firm has a creative way of thinking which generates practical solutions for its clients.

The firm has developed a series of close relationships with other firms worldwide during these 15 years, including the United States, Europe, North Africa and the Far East. (This includes its new friends at Primerus).

Brödermann & Jahn has been in the forefront of developing close ties with China, including the co-initiation and promotion of the Chinese European Arbitration Centre "CEAC" (

Prof. Dr. Brödermann said, "It has been the most exciting decade-and-a-half of growth and development. We are looking forward to the next 15 years enormously."
