“We love family businesses –
working with their owners is our calling and our profession.”



In addition to the seven partners, our team also includes other highly qualified colleagues who assist us with our projects and our work.


joke bahadir

b. June 19, 1969 | married, 1 child | Lawyer

Following a degree in law and a doctoral degree, Joke Bahadir joined the team around Peter May and Karin Ebel in 2000; she thus has a long track record of providing advice to business-owning families. In addition, Joke Bahadir has long been a university instructor in the fields of business administration and law, as well as an experienced seminar instructor on topics around business and the business family.

The focus of her work is on accompanying business-owning families during the succession process and – within the scope of her work for Ebel Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft – its legal implementation.

Her guiding principle is: “As a member of a business family myself, I have a good sense of the areas of friction in families. The performance and the problems that result from the interaction of family and business fascinate me every time I encounter them.”

After training as a banker and studying psychology, Ursula Merckle worked for many years in her own practice and as a lecturer.

This perspective makes Ursula Merckle a valuable addition to the legal and business approach.

Ursula Merckle's focal areas of work are in accompanying owner strategy and succession processes as well as in individual coaching.

Her guiding principle is: “I am fascinated by the close involvement of factual and emotional topics in a family business. Working out future-oriented and solution-oriented strategies together is an exciting challenge for me.”
