Proven track record Sonntag Partner started as a sole practice in
1978 by Dieter Sonntag in Augsburg, Germany, and became a partnership three
years later after Dieter Sonntag merged his practice with those of Peter Alterauge
and Dr. Peter Berndsen.
The firm has continued to grow ever since. Matters have increasingly grown in
sophistication, while new partners and other professionals have built out and
