The seventies

Shortly before the death of Dr. Peter Heynen, namely on January 2, 1968, Mr. Wulf Berend Petersson, attorney at law, first joined the firm as a salaried associate. The partners at that time had known Mr. Petersson since 1963, when he worked as a freelancer in the law firm after passing the first state examination and before starting his legal traineeship. Mr. Petersson also completed his legal traineeship in the law firm during the subsequent legal traineeship. He was mainly Dr. Assigned to Peter Heynen and early on acquired in-depth knowledge of forwarding and freight law and the associated special insurance rights, the areas of law in which Dr. Peter Heynen was mainly active.


On April 1, 1969, Dr. Radischat and Mr. Petersson merged to form a law firm, which until the departure of Dr. Radischat should hold in 1991 and was characterized by rare harmony. Dr. Radishat died in 1994.

Mr. Petersson managed to build up a practice that was primarily oriented towards business law. Corporate law and, through the representation of a large Hamburg insurance company, insurance law took up a lot of space. Over the years, due to a corresponding clientele, there has been a strong focus on private construction law, which can today be regarded as Mr. Petersson's specialty.

Mr. Petersson has been a volunteer in the evangelical church for many years. After many years as a member of the church council of his parish in Hamburg-Alsterdorf, he has been the chairman of a small Protestant association for several years, which deals with the care of foreigners and Germans who want to emigrate as well as with counseling mainly for women who intend to marry Muslims and with ship pastoral care .

On February 1, 1970, attorney Karl Petran joined the partnership. From this he left in 1982 by mutual agreement.
