Specialist legal advice to clients from Germany
Every year thousands of German businesses and individuals invest in or expand into the UK. As a market, the UK has much to offer and there is a long-standing history of active commercial activity between Germany and the UK.
There are, however, considerable differences between Germany and the UK in terms of legal structure on the one hand and customary practices on the other. For a German business this can mean complications when entering into the UK market, and it is advisable to seek advice at an early stage.
For many decades our German-speaking team of experts, consisting of German and English lawyers, has been providing legal support and advice regarding England and international cross-border transactions to both commercial and private clients from German-speaking countries. Our expertise includes all areas which are relevant to businesses dealing in the UK or internationally; from starting up a company, advice on commercial contracts, joint ventures and acquisitions (M&A) to cross-border mergers or a listing on the stock exchange. We also advise on related areas such as intellectual property, employment law, real estate and tax.
Together with our close contacts in other professions such as accountants, estate agents and financial advisers, we can provide a comprehensive service in relation to most commercial and legal aspects.
Our experience in advising German and other international companies in the UK means we understand your specific requirements and can target them directly. In doing so we aim to ensure the best possible outcome for each individual client, on budget and on time. In fact our clients value our personal and clear advice as well as the close relationship with our partners. This has meant that we have been able to maintain several large companies in German-speaking countries as our loyal clients for many years.
If you are considering investing into or doing business in the UK, we would be pleased to discuss your plans and help you achieve your objectives.
