Law Firm

KFR stands for Kirchhoff Franke Riethmüller – the Real Estate Law Firm

Founded in 2015, we advise on all matters relating to real estate and construction law in Hamburg and Munich.

What are our strengths? Real estate transactions, project development, construction law and architectural law, asset management, public law, and dispute resolution. We have been handling such matters for years and have gained a wealth of experience over this time frame, with each member of our team developing a specific skillset and subject-matter expertise. Our approach is not that any team member will deal with any matter, instead, each member of our team will provide that service and advice at which they excel in particular. In the event that different fields of law come into play, we work together as a team. This is also something that we have practiced for a long period of time. We are especially pleased to address the challenges brought on by complex issues as this provides us with the opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities. We find solutions for questions instead of questions or problems for ready-made solutions.

Keyword efficiency: our structure allows for focused work provided by the person in charge who has the most expertise. We are permanently aware of the effort and, consequently, the costs incurred. We are here to help you, it is all about your interests and your requirements. Not more, not less.

For whom do we work? We would be delighted to work for you! Our clients include investors, project developers, construction companies, asset managers and the public sector. In short, anybody who is professionally involved in real estate. We would like to cater in particular to clients who do not want to miss the advisory quality of a big law firm but who, at the same time, appreciate receiving flexible and pragmatic advice.

Comprehensive advice relating to real estate law.
Our focus

This constitutes a focus area of the practice of KFR. We advise our clients comprehensively with respect to real estate transactions of all kinds, in particular regarding the property types office space, residential, retail, and logistics.

Our supreme discipline

This is the supreme discipline of real estate law. We assist and accompany our clients from the first idea to the implementation of the project and advise on all legal questions arising in relation with the development and the individual project phases. The tasks and challenges are multifaceted and evolve constantly.

Bread and butter of the real estate sector

It’s the bread and butter of the real estate sector. While oftentimes neglected in legal counselling, we consciously put it at the centre of our services. As standardization has advanced to a high degree, we are in particular able to offer very good quality legal advice at very competitive conditions in this field.

Our exceptional talent

There is no construction project without construction rights. Obtaining, enforcing, and maintaining construction rights is one of our core activities in the field of public law. Furthermore, we provide advice on many other matters relating to public law, in particular, public construction law and planning law. The co-operation and the interaction between the public sector and the builder or investor are of particular significance in this area.

Our building block to success

Construction is a business that is a source of excitement but also a source of tension. The projects are often characterized by an unusually high number of involved parties, several intersections, unforeseeable circumstances and, consequently, also a high potential for conflict. These potential conflicts have to be anticipated and prevented already in the context of the drafting of the contracts or have to be resolved – in the event that they manifest – at a later point in time, where possible, in an amicable manner, and where necessary, in the context of a dispute. We are available to provide advice to you with solution approaches that are as efficient as they are creative.

Our maxim

Disputes are never an ideal situation, but we can provide assistance in this case as well, when needed. We represent our clients’ interests both out of court and, when no other option is available, also in court, in particular in the field of civil law and public law.
