GWZ is a boutique law firm focused on dispute resolution and IT and intellectual property law. Our expertise also includes real estate law, building and construction issues, corporate and company law, insolvency law, maritime and transport law, insurance law and commercial agreements.

Our lawyers have extensive experience from their practice areas, and have acted as advisers in a number of complex disputes and business law matters – often in an international environment. As our client you can always expect advice directly from an expert. We offer skill, commitment and straightforward communication.

GWZ is organised as a true partnership, which means that our partners share all profits equally. The true partnership model ensures that our clients receive the best possible counsel in every matter. We do not strive to re-invent the role of the business lawyer or to become as large as possible. Instead, our goal is to be the go-to law firm for clients who seek top quality legal advice.
