We assist clients operating between Germany and the UK. Our partner-led team includes German-speaking lawyers and provides a full range of legal services.
We advise businesses and institutions from Germany and German-speaking countries that are active or investing in the UK market.
Our German-related work is diverse and often involves multiple teams within our firm. We advise clients undertaking corporate and real estate transactions, managing disputes and advising on more personal matters. We also specialise in International Construction projects and disputes and have particular expertise in the FIDIC forms of contract.
We have several fluent German speakers across different practice areas and often provide legal advice to our clients in German.
We are well connected within Germany, maintaining relationships with other international advisers and with clients and contacts. We are regular visitors to the country, including attending the annual International Hotel Investment Forum in Berlin and EXPO Real conference in Munich. In London, we maintain close relationships with several German-focused networks, including hosting meetings of the Association of Foreign Banks in London, which numbers many German banks among its members, and the Worshipful Company of International Bankers. Our firm is a corporate member of the German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce and we are also a partner firm of, and work closely with London & Partners, the Mayor of London's organisation which helps overseas companies set up and scale up across London.
We're also there for when things go wrong. We are members of the International Bar Association and regularly deal with cross-border litigation and arbitration. We are experts in registration and reciprocal enforcement of judgments and arbitral awards between Germany and the UK.
As an independent firm, in cross-border matters we are free to partner with the best-in-class law firms of choice in Germany and the rest of the world to give you and your business the best possible multi-jurisdictional support.
