Our firm

Our firm’s history

Our firm “Notare am Rathausmarkt” was founded in 2006 by notary Dr. Gerd H. Langhein. The notaries Dr. Jens Jeep and Dr. Ursula Geßner joined the Notare am Rathausmarkt in 2007. Dr. Geßner left the firm in 2014 to open an office in Bavaria. In 2010, Dr. Martin L. Kochheim joined the partnership. Our founder Dr. Gerd H. Langhein passed away in 2015, and notary Dr. Jan Hupka joined the team in 2017. Our team was rounded off by Dr. Sarah Nietner who joined us as a notary in 2020. Notary Dr. Jens Jeep left the firm in 2022, to open a new office in Hamburg-Ottensen. 

Our office

Our easily accessible office is located in the centre of Hamburg. With several spacious conference and meeting rooms – some with a view of the town hall and access to the roof terrace – we are able to arrange notarisations with a larger number of participants and meet the requirements of demanding transactions.

Our team

The notaries at “Notare am Rathausmarkt” work together with a highly-qualified team of more than twenty employees. Closely aligning with the responsible notary, the team drafts and prepares deeds, coordinates changes and appointments with the parties and processes all certified and notarised documents, including correspondence with the parties, registers, authorities and financial institutions.

If you have any questions regarding the certified or notarised documents and their processing, your personal team member is your primary, trustworthy contact person.
