The history of KINAST Attorneys at Law

A legal practice is born
KINAST - Our Company - 2006

Many years ago, long before the GDPR came into effect, we opened our first office on 'Venloer Straße', a well known, bustling city street in Germany's western metropolis of Cologne. At that time, it was mainly IT consultants and system administrators who dealt with data protection. However, it soon became clear that data protection is a legal matter - and so, as lawyers, we began to provide professionally qualified advice in this specialist area and to support a wide variety of companies as external data protection officers.

KINAST - Our Company - GDPR

With the introduction of the GDPR in May 2018, data protection had finally arrived in the mainstream. Almost everyone was forced to deal with it, from one-man businesses to large corporations. The need for advice was immense - and there were many new businesses trying their hand at data protection consultation.

Since then, data protection requirements have become increasingly complex and stringent, both nationally and internationally. The issue of compliance is also becoming increasingly important for companies.

Global digitalisation and international data flow
KINAST - Our Company - GDPR

Today, we support national and international clients, assisting them to stay fit for the future in the advancing field of global digitalization. Data protection is no longer just a necessary evil that you want to get rid of as quickly as possible. Companies will become more and more digitalized in the coming years. Being able to use data properly plays an increasingly crucial role and accounts for real competitive advantages.

We also engage in charitable work, create connections at our events and dedicate ourselves to teaching, information and knowledge transfer.

KINAST: Planning for the future

Legal. Innovations. Administration.

In June 2021, with a view to the future developement of our business, brand and services, KINAST Attorneys at Law took the courageous step of an internal restructure. To address the rapid growth of varying legal teams and administrative departments, we created two new sister companies – Kinast Innovations and KINAST Lawyer Services. Since then the three sister companies have continued to work together, and with our clients, in perfect synergy. They also have the freedom to persue their own strategic development and growth for the future. This synergy not only benefits the KINAST Group of companies internally, but also the scope of legal services and products that we can offer our clients.

Team spirit is part of who we are! Our cooperation is professional, our sincerity and camaraderie unsurpassed. Our diverse team of specialists – each in his or her own field – work side by side to lead our clients to success and make them fit for the future.
