Good online directories/search engines for finding German-speaking direct clients?

Hopefully, this is the right forum to post this in...While most of my clients are translation agencies, I have sometimes sought out direct clients. (I work from German into English and translate mainly legal contracts/business terms and conditions.) Does anyone know of any good online resources which provide the e-mail addresses of potential direct clients in Germany and/or Austria and/or Switzerland? For example, Wer Liefert Was? is pretty good. Are there any other good ones? I am particularly interested in any ones that are targeted. There are ones like the Gelbe Seiten which bring up an enormous number of hits, but often only a telephone number is provided which brings in an unacceptable amount of time and money expenditures to call everybody. It seems that it's ultimately somewhat less targeted in that you can, for example, find thousands and thousands of lawyers who are "one-man shows", but not necessarily leads which might be promising if the amount of work they have is limited in general or they have no international concentration.
