Our multidisciplinary German Desk has extensive experience counseling and representing clients based in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on a full range of U.S. legal matters. Often working alongside local law firms, we frequently also represent our U.S.-based clients on matters in those regions.
Our representations cover the full range of legal practice areas, including dispute resolution, transactions and regulatory matters. We help clients overcome the challenges posed by cross-border business dealings, including unfamiliar laws, alternative business practices, cultural differences, bureaucratic red tape and language issues. Our experience provides us with a unique understanding of how business is done in different jurisdictions, and we are familiar with the difficulties arising in transactions and disputes.
Our team consists of highly skilled lawyers and other professionals who work seamlessly and cohesively to meet clients’ goals and objectives. All have experience working with companies and individuals in the region, and they have valuable sector experience in chemicals, engineering, energy, electronics, financial services, infrastructure, insurance, pharmaceutical, technology, waste management and recycling. We strive to provide a balance of legal know-how and understanding of our clients’ industry sectors to deliver practical business results.
We are also members of significant industry associations, including the German American Chamber of Commerce and the European American Chamber of Commerce.
Aligned to resourcefully meet client needs, our German Desk advises on a wide range of issues and industries:
