International Network

US Desk

The USA is the most important foreign investor in Germany and is the largest legal market in the world. It is therefore not surprising that it has traditionally been a focus of our strong international practice. For more than 25 years, we have developed close connections to clients and law firms throughout the USA. Our US Desk is staffed by a team of experienced lawyers, who specialise in advising US clients in all relevant areas of law and sectors. Many members of our team have studied or worked in the USA, and have developed a deep understanding of American business culture and the expectations of US clients. Our American clients can access to our extensive expertise in German and European law and our strong contacts on the German market – as only a leading, independent, German law firm can offer. We guide our clients smoothly through the special features of the German legal system and ensure that their rights and interests are properly safeguarded.

German, Chinese and Russian clients that are looking to do business in the USA can access our strong network of first-class, American law firms, located throughout the country. We help you find the right firm and the best lawyer, where you need them, so that you can concentrate on your business with a trusted advisor at your side. Where necessary, we assist and coordinate the legal work handled by US law firms and ensure comprehensive and efficient service for our clients.
