Welcome to the new ASD LEGAL INFORMATION HUB. We are redesigning the website of our law firm. We have cooperated closely with experienced designers, programmers and user experience specialists to create a new cosmos of websites in which every user can find systematic and intelligently processed information.
Under the button “ABOUT THE INFORMATION HUB” you can find out how our new information system works.
You can count on us
As a law firm with more than 150 lawyers, notaries and tax advisors, ARNECKE SIBETH DABELSTEIN offers legal advice in all relevant business locations.
We are one of the leading law firms in Germany with offices in Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Leer and Dresden and are internationally recognised market leaders in the areas of real estate, transportation/aviation/logistics and maritime industry. We are also continuously growing in the energy, insurance, technology/media and sports law sectors.
Our legal practice areas include labour/employment, Insurance, corporate/m&a, banking & finance, intellectual property, IT, commercial, public and antitrust. We also have a tax team and a notary's office.
Due to our memberships in global legal networks (e.g. Interlaw, Meritas, Legal Netlink Alliance) as well as worldwide contacts to specialised law firms, we are also a reliable partner for international clients.
We are in Law
ARNECKE SIBETH DABELSTEIN represents a 90 year old history of a dynamic and future oriented working approach. With over 150 enthusiastic lawyers, some of them with international awards, and with our excellent notary office and tax law team, we are now one of the most important full-service business law firms in Germany.
The global pandemic at the beginning of the 2020s accelerated the necessary change. This also effects us – both as a responsible employer and as a provider of progressive legal services. We are aiming to be digital, faster and sustainable in all of our actions.
As an “employer in transition”, we discuss with our staff what the “law firm of the future” should look like. At the same time, we aim to strengthen our digital competence in our 18 law segments.
This means, for example, that we can react quicker to enquiries and that we also have greater opportunities for forward-looking consultation because we can identify topics for the future at an earlier stage.
In addition, we are constantly working on new areas of consulting, such as ESG (environmental, social, governance) and aim to underline our claim to be sustainable both internally and externally.
Our corporate culture of flat hierarchies, open doors and respectful and unprejudiced relationships is part of our history. ASD always was – and still is – open-minded and future-oriented. We want to strengthen this approach in our transformation process.
Open by nature
We stand in a long tradition. In the era of steam-powered shipping we already advised shipping companies, shipyards, importers and exporters, and we were recognised as specialists for shipping, transport and insurance law. Today we are among the leading national and international law firms for the maritime industry, transportation, aviation & logistics. In the real estate segment we also embraced both tradition and modernity at an early stage, and we have long been one of the leaders in Germany and Europe.
The transformation to a large and modern full-service commercial law firm, which now covers 18 areas of law, was completed by the merger of three medium-sized law firms: Dabelstein & Passehl, Hamburg (founded in 1930), Arnecke Siebold, Frankfurt (founded in 1995) and Sibeth, Munich (founded in 2005).
Our legal services now cover topics such as employment law, corporate, finance, M&A, IP, IT, commercial, public law and antitrust law. We also have a tax law team and a notary office with locations in Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, Leer & Dresden.
Our teams are inter-disciplinary, serve different segments of commerce and industry and are very well networked. With our long-standing membership of exclusive law firm networks, such as Interlaw and Meritas, we are a reliable partner for both national and international clients in all relevant areas of law.
Collaborative, communicative, open minded
At ARNECKE SIBETH DABELSTEIN we maintain short communication channels and shallow hierarchies. Our three managing partners are supported by four specialist departments (Finance, Marketing/Business Development, Human Resources and IT) and the office managers in the individual locations.

The ASD LEGAL INFORMATION HUB
More relevant information, agile and smartly processed. A time saver for clients and partners.
The ASD LEGAL INFORMATION HUB consists of a modular web network which is sub-divided into three systems:
Our main page is the heart of our ASD LEGAL INFORMATION HUB
Here you can find all the basic information about our law firm. We also offer a rapid and clearly structured introduction to our areas of law, experts, locations, the latest news and events and the career opportunities in our law firm, and you no longer have to click your way through many different sub-levels and complicated menu structures.
Every area of law has its own website
You can use sub-domains to gain direct access to the subjects you are interested in without having to navigate the complicated route via the main page. You will quickly find the information you are looking for. In the future, more STARS will be added with topics such as “INTERNATIONAL DESKS” or “WOMEN IN LAW”. Our cosmos is alive, and it is constantly expanding.
The digital business cards of our experts
For each area of law there are landing pages with individual information about our lawyers, their specialisations and teams and other interesting information. They are the digital business cards of our experts.
This whole cosmos of information is connected and provides links to our external social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Xing, Youtube, Soundcloud, Talentrocket, the platforms and websites of our partners. And starting in 2022, it will also link to our modern new customer relationship management system.
Our advisory and support services are sustainable, comprehensive and transparent: We show our clients the opportunities, risks and consequences in every situation - realistically and pragmatically. This includes a reliable assessment of the legal and procedural situation, the expected financial, temporal, personnel and also emotional challenges of legal disputes.
We manage state court proceedings as well as national and international arbitration proceedings. With our worldwide network, we also coordinate proceedings across borders. We represent clients in association court proceedings as well as mediation and other dispute resolution proceedings. Our 18 legal segments offer you assistance in all relevant business areas.
