Luther strengthens its Real Estate Practice in Berlin

In the New Year, Luther is strengthening its partnership in Berlin with Jens Bock and Doreen König. Both are notaries and have many years of experience in real estate law. Florian Schwuchow will also join them as Counsel. All three come from the Berlin Law Firm SammlerUsinger, which is primarily active in real estate law.


Jens Bock is an attorney and civil law notary. After studying law at the University of Bochum and completing his legal clerkship at the Superior Court of Justice, he was admitted to the bar in 1989 and appointed notary in 1998. He started his career at Linklaters and predecessor law firms and joined SammlerUsinger in 2009.

Doreen König is an attorney and civil law notary as well. After studying law at Berlin's Humboldt University, she began her professional career at Clifford Chance before joining SammlerUsinger in 2009.

In addition to their work as notaries, Bock and König are particularly active in the real estate transaction business, in advising on real estate project developments and in the area of commercial tenancy law.

The trio's clients include well-known companies, in particular national and international real estate investors, project developers, family offices with a focus on real estate, facility managers as well as banks and insurance companies. They match and complement Luther's strategic industry focus.

"We are very pleased that we have been able to win Jens Bock, Doreen König and their team for Luther and that we are thus able to prominently expand our real estate law advice", says Elisabeth Lepique, Co-Managing Partner at Luther. "With these two new additions, Luther will now have seven notaries public in Berlin", adds Dr. Markus Sengpiel, Co-Managing Partner at Luther. "The experience and knowledge of the new team is a real asset for us and our clients".
