We have been awarded! - DATEV Label "Digital Law Firm 2022

We are pleased to have received the “digital law firm” award from DATEV eG for the fourth time in a row. This is because Gehrke Econ was already able to enjoy this award in 2019, 2020 an 2021.

With the label Digital DATEV Law Firm, DATEV eG honors innovative law firms that achieve a high rate of digitalization in their working methods. DATEV eG awards the label to law firms that stand out for their consistent digital collaboration with their clients.

The basis for this award is our participation in the DATEV Digitalization Cockpit. Our figures proved that we already work very digitally.

The degree of digitalization of our firm was measured by the key figures in the areas of accounting, taxes and wages of our digital way of working.

The criteria for the award are tightened annually, which is why law firms always have to go through this process anew. The DATEV Digital Law Firm label thus also guarantees that the corresponding law firms are up to date on the topic of digitization. That’s why our goal is, of course, to receive the label again next year.

It is important to us to continue to drive digitization forward in order to make it easier for you to work together on a day-to-day basis and to get ever closer to the paperless office.

We counted our annual rings: 60 for Gehrke and 40 for Econ!


In January 1956 Fridwald Gehrke, together with his wife, took on the challenge of becoming self-employed tax advisors in Hanover. They opened up a joint office with a borrowed chair and a borrowed cabinet. Together with his former employees, Fridwald Gehrke founded the partnership, Gehrke-Grethe-Heuer in 1972. Over the coming years additional partners were admitted to the firm. In 1994 the Gehrke Group moved into larger offices in Hanover-Döhren. In the course of a generational succession in the 1990s, the shares in the firm were passed to a team of younger partners, some of whom, Ulrich Gehrke, Julia Chappuzeau, Carsten Klingebiel and Oliver Vogt, still lead the firm today. The Gehrke Econ Group arose from the merger with the Econ group of companies in 2010, which was founded by the auditor and tax advisor, Peter W. Plagens in 1976, and has become one of the largest advisory firms in the Hanover region.
