HLB Germany

HLB Germany, our national network (HLBD), was founded in 1974 by our firm in the person of Dr Werner Linn and three other German auditing firms. HLBD consists at this time of 23 independent German auditing and tax consultancy firms at 30 locations with about 2,000 employees. This network is one of the top three German national auditing firm networks.

Each NLBD member covers all service areas of a professional auditing and accounting firm. The special character and strengths of the German HLB Group result from intensive collaboration between member firms. This extends from joint employee training and continuing education in the HLB Academy to preparing current professional topics in professional groups, joint IT platforms to exchange information, maintaining a knowledge database and the use of joint auditing software to preparing and implementing internal and external quality assurance activities, and many additional benefits and synergy effects from which our clients benefit.

We see the HLB network as the “golden mean” between a large auditing firm (“Big Four”) and a locally-placed owned firm. On the one hand, we meet the international needs of our clients. On the other hand, we want to maintain our independence, flexibility and self-reliance in the context of a self-created corporate culture.

HLB Academy

The HLB Academy is a training and continuing education institute for all staff at HLB Germany. In addition to assistance for professional exams by HLB member firms and joint visits from external training events, they offer custom training and continuing education for various activity fields. The individual one-week seminars in auditing, I-IV, provide a complete service for audit assistants, auditors and audit managers; in addition, further events are being prepared. Our partner, Gerhard Goppold is professionally and personally responsible for this.


SLB LAW is a law firm that offers clients comprehensive and first-class advice in business law. In this context, international expertise is a decisive benefit: As a founding member as well as Munich office of the law firm network Mackrell International (170 offices, 60 countries, 4,500 lawyers) as well as exclusive German partner law firm of the Grimaldi Alliance (offices in 44 countries), the lawyers are regularly active in international teams and practice groups in cross-border mandates. The firm's clients include in particular leading medium-sized companies and German subsidiaries of international corporations. They mandate SLB LAW because they value the experience and competence of the lawyers, many of whom have previously worked in well-known international commercial law firms, and at the same time prefer the more personal, partner-based advice of a boutique firm. SLB LAW offers highly personal and at the same time, very comprehensive advice from a single source and often acts as an outsourced legal department. In addition to corporate law, the areas of labor law, real estate law, as well as commercial and distribution law, and banking and capital market law play a central role.
