Client statements


„When we were looking for an auditing firm and tax consultancy to accompany us on our way into digitalised financial processes, we came across Heinrich & Partner. We are impressed by how much we have been able to implement with Heinrich & Partner in the last three years. One additional insight we have gained during this time is that it does not always have to be one of the big law firms that helps you achieve professionalism. We perceive Heinrich & Partner as extremely competent, professional and human, which led us to shift our mandate entirely to H&P.“
