"The newly revised volumes of the Staudinger represent an academic achievement that is unmatched in the professional literature and, given the substantive constraints on authors, will remain unmatched.”

Egon Schneider in the Zeitschrift für die Anwaltspraxis, no. 22, November 2010

"[...] the Staudinger [...] can still claim, with full justification, to be the essential and pre-eminent comprehensive commentary on the German Civil Code.”
Mathias Habersack in the journal ZHR, 174/2010

"The Staudinger – a string of monograph-pearls, self-contained commentaries, in depth, but at the same time casting light on every layer of the civil code.”
Dr. Anatol Dutta, Research Consultant at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law

“The Staudinger provides answers to questions that other commentaries do not even ask.”
Attorney Dr. Tobias Eckardt, Ahlers & Vogel

“A richly and painstakingly researched source of knowledge, which additionally offers self-contained solutions to both basic and detailed problems from the entire scope of German civil law, including its increasingly important international connections. Thus, for the practitioner needing a civil law reference work to develop creative solutions, the Staudinger is a great asset.”
Attorney Dr. Johannes Cziupka, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
