A new perspective.

NOTOS has grown around a team of highly specialized lawyers.
Our new head office is now open in Frankfurt am Main. Our
main focuses are IP/IT, privacy, commercial and contract law
as well as litigation.


NOTOS offers specialized legal advice in the areas of IP/IT, Privacy, Commercial and Contract law as well as Litigation. With passion and ambition, we seamlessly combine our know-how with the requirements of our clients through state-of-the-art technology in a highly specialized unit. At the beginning of 2019, we grew to include a team of experienced and highly qualified lawyers and paralegals who joined us in a spin-off from an established German commercial law firm. At the same time, we’ve opened our new head office in the city center of Frankfurt am Main and present our firm with a clear positioning and a redesigned NOTOS brand.

The specialization of our attorneys corresponds with their personal interests in the many rapid changes that the digital age brings in a wide variety of forms. Through teaching activities, intensive participation in expert committees and memberships in organizations of many innovation-driven industries, we maintain the connection to the business of our clients. This sets NOTOS three offices apart from competing firms.

As a client, you will experience our deep understanding of your case very directly: each of our attorneys is committed to your interests with a high degree of personal commitment. No matter how complex the matter may be.
