The “Schließmann Principles”

Legal, commercial and tax issues relating to yachts are regularly located in an international environment. Our clients rely on intelligent and innovative solutions that go beyond standards.

  • We are advisors & companions.
  • Thanks to our particular specialization and positioning, we deliberately and successfully position ourselves in the premium segment of the international yacht market and provide our clients with particularly personal support.

Our clients benefit from our four principles:

1. The principle of “understanding”

We do not just accompany yacht owners and manufacturers; we understand them.

  • And this is not only because of our over 20 years of expertise in international consultation business, but also because of our personal entrepreneurial character and passion for yacht industry.

  • For us, consultation is: understanding, thinking forward, analysing and helping effectively.

  • We provide you support and guidance in complex projects as well as queries related to day-to-day business in national and international arena.

2. The principle of “One face to the customer”

Prof. Dr. Christoph Ph. Schließmann personally manages your mandate/project, irrespective of where and by whom the services are rendered and follows its progress.

  • He supports you personally as well as internationally at your venues and also travels for you if the case demands it.

  • You can read more about our activities in international business law on our company website

3. The principle of “eye level”

Prof. Dr. Schließmann sees himself as a project manager and specialist in yacht law and a specialist lawyer for international commercial law (he was one of the first Germans to hold this title in October 2014).

  • As founder and head of the owner-managed commercial law firm “CPS Schließmann Wirtschaftsanwälte”, Prof. Dr. Christoph Ph. Schließmann offers personal support at eye level, entrepreneurial empathy for the facts of the case and sound, critical advice with a holistic, international perspective.

  • The focus of our work is on high benefit and simultaneous risk minimization.
