Attorney and notary Michael Poggendorf establishes the firm, specialising in commercial and corporate law. It quickly becomes one of the most sought-out firms for medium-sized companies in Berlin.

The addition of attorney and notary Ulrich Schellenberg coincides with a period of intense cooperation with the Trust and Privatisation Agency following German unification.

Attorney and notary Burkhard Herzog also joins the firm during this phase. The legal counsel the firm provides for the privatisation of large, formerly state-owned companies requires competence in every aspect of corporate law. This phase spans an entire decade – a remarkable time full of invaluable experience.

The firm begins operating under the name Poggendorf Schellenberg Herzog.

The founder, attorney and notary Michael Poggendorf, leaves the firm, which continues operating under the name Schellenberg Herzog.

Attorney and notary Carsten Brekenfeld resigns as partner of a regional firm and joins Schellenberg Herzog, strengthening the firm’s competence in corporate law, inheritance law and property law.
