With the geopolitical challenges and the world situation in the 21st century, we accompany our clients in the global auditor network worldwide in 135 countries. A wide range of individual and customized consulting services, tailored to the specific needs of our clients, implement them on time with the highest standards, efficiency and quality.
The provision of these services is therefore not a matter of self-interest, but is intended to offer the public security in terms of consulting quality and at the same time lead to legal certainty. We provide the partner responsible for the mandate with interdisciplinary teams of specialists who meet the respective project requirements on an international as well as on a national level. The avoidance of disputes is another positive side aspect of the auditor’s work.
In order to be able to fulfill these tasks, care is already taken when appointing auditors to ensure that only the best are appointed to this public office. This results in the highest quality requirements for the auditor, his employees and a lifelong commitment to further training.
Our aspiration can therefore only be to achieve the highest performance in terms of quality and client satisfaction in fulfilling the tasks assigned to us, to protect and enhance the values and assets of our clients and to identify and manage internal and external risks at an early stage.
WPNO, with its interdisciplinary partners from Cologne and Hamburg, advises clients from multinational industrial companies, publicly traded companies, upper mid-sized companies and the public sector, in business law, fully comprehensive, professionally innovative, entrepreneurial thinking.
WPNO does not limit its view within the scope of the support of its clients only to tangential fields of law. Rather, we broaden our view to the underlying facts of life with all its facets.
In this way, we avoid singular and inadequate solutions and, on this basis, develop together with you correspondingly far-sighted, but above all worldwide practical concepts, strategies and solutions.
WPNO answers your questions clearly and comprehensibly. In doing so, we always focus on your interests and do not answer with “no” in order to justify afterwards why something is not possible. We answer with “yes” and show you ways how your interests can be enforced worldwide and how your projects, products or services can be implemented or established.
This broad perspective enables us to apply our sustainable and result-oriented consulting approach in line with your overriding business interests.
WPNO provides you with a significant advantage over competitors who are stuck in singular business and legal perspectives and therefore do not consider interactions.
WPNO is not an auditing firm. We have deliberately chosen a different path. WPNO is unique, different and especially not mainstream. Innovation and creativity characterize us as much as forensic precision.
Embrace this potential and benefit from our broad pool of expertise. Quality and diversity are not mutually exclusive, but rather interdependent and, in our opinion, closely linked. We work according to this philosophy.
With our generalist, sustainable and results-oriented consulting approach as an owner-managed auditing firm, we always keep the overriding interests of our clients and the profitability of our solutions in mind. Thus, we cover a very specialized range of competencies.
As a consiliator of mediation, conflict and problem solving in legal disputes between companies, family offices and private individuals, we are actively and successfully engaged nationwide in avoiding disputes and establishing legal certainty with an atypical way of thinking and living.
Our goal is to provide you with a stable foundation for your further entrepreneurial decisions with the solutions we work out. This is what distinguishes WPNO and manifests itself in the sustainability of our work.
WPNO distinguishes itself by continuing our consulting where conventional consulting approaches end. We place special emphasis on custom-fit and individual approaches, results-oriented consulting, very clear recommendations and first-class results for our clients.
By involving internal and external specialists, we offer an analysis in addition to a risk assessment from a classic auditor’s and lawyer’s perspective, which ensures a complete coverage of all legal, regulatory and compliance risks that come into consideration.
We live by our personal commitment to achieve absolute excellence in terms of quality, efficiency and client satisfaction in the performance of the tasks assigned to us. At the heart of our work, however, is our passion.
Take advantage of the synergy effects that arise from the fact that the auditor, with his trained eye, views facts from a fundamentally different perspective and in discourse, among others with our lawyers, who develop new solution models for you.
WPNO is both traditional and modern. Traditional is our view of a long-lasting and sustainable client relationship, based on grown trust and mutual success. Modern is our know-how, our IT as well as the consulting fields of our respective partners. Our twenty years of well-founded professional experience ensure the successful economic and legal shaping of issues relevant to the future. We understand entrepreneurs, because we are entrepreneurs ourselves. You can rely on that.
First-class and excellent premium full service, outstanding expertise and an exceptionally personal support of our clients in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Latvian, Mandarin and constant dialogue are equally our claim and our flagship at WPNO.
