Further, we offer a comprehensive catalogue of standard documents and have a cost structure in place that allows us to offer highly specialised advice to start-ups and entrepreneurs based on very attractive fixed pricing and/or other individually agreed price models always taking into account the financial position and liquidity of the individual start-up.
