German Practice

The professionals in our German practice are trained and qualified in both US and German law, and represent German, Swiss and Austrian clients in the US and throughout the Common Law world.  We act as a bridge among Continental Civil Law, legal, business and cultural systems and the Common Law systems for doing business worldwide.  

We assist clients in intergovernmental matters, joint ventures, international manufacturing, sales and distribution, real estate, finance, trade, investment, litigation, arbitration, immigration, merger and acquisitions, intellectual property, licensing, trust, estates, wills, and governmental contracts.  We also provide comprehensive planning, tax and negotiating strategies, as well as post-transaction implementation advice.  

We work hard to understand our clients’ needs, goals, risk analyses and market strategies.  Our integrated team approach is particularly well-suited for mid-market clients and mid-market transactions for large enterprises.  

All members of our German practice are fluent in written and spoken German and studied in U.S. and German law schools. We use lean staffing of experienced attorneys to provide cost-efficiency and value to our clients.
