About us

KSP has been practising civil and commercial law for more than 50 years and specialises in collection services by lawyers, advisory work and litigation relating to general business law. As a law firm, we are independent of commercial groups.

Our aim is to reduce the risk of default for your company substantially. At the same time, our associated legal advice shows clients opportunities for optimising their own processes. This not only safeguards cash flow, but also provides greater visibility and legal certainty. You can concentrate on your core business.

We know how hard it is to win a customer and how easily they can be lost again. For this reason, we expect our nearly 500 employees, including round 60 lawyers, to demonstrate not only legal expertise but also a high degree of diplomacy and discretion.
