Professional standards


Consultants working for this company bind themselves to the professional standards customary in trade and advise private as well as commercial and public clients according to their professional job-related orientation. They pursue their profession quality oriented and point out their specific professional qualifications.


Consultants pursue their profession conscientiously. They only accept mandates for which processing they have the required skills and which can be handled properly under the given circumstances. Consultants prove themselves worthy of the trust and consideration required by their position inside and outside professional life. In public they are to abstain from any action that could damage or seem likely to damage the reputation or standing of the company or the professional association it belongs to, its bodies and office holders or individual associated colleagues.


The counselors are to preserve their personal and economic independence when exercising their profession. They must not meet any condition that could endanger their professional independence. Their personal responsibility requires them to personally form their opinion and exclusively orient their decisions according to it.


The obligation to discretion covers every information that has been intrusted or that has become apparent to the counselors while exercising their profession. Counselors are to urge their colleagues and employees to follow this principle especially to protect the clients and colleagues.

Behavior towards clients 

The relationship between counselors and their clients is based on mutual trust. The acceptance of a mandate should be excluded in all cases in which mutual trust can not be established. The same applies for the retention of the mandate. Apart from that the counselors are free to accept any mandate – as long as it doesn’t affect the loyal consideration towards their associated colleagues.


Fees must be agreed on before accepting a counseling mandate. The agreement must specify the fee framework for the client clearly.

Incompatible activities 

The counselors are to avoid any activities that can jeopardize the adherence to the principles or the reputation of the profession.
