Culture

Your legal hub for Germany and France

Since 2000, we have been advising medium-sized companies and large corporations on all aspects of German and French business law. With a team of over 20 German and French Attorneys specialising in the law of both countries, we can serve as a legal hub for investors having projects or subsidiaries in both countries and searching for a one-stop-solution. We have been leading in our field for many years. The high quality of advice and customer satisfaction is reflected in the results of independent client surveys. We have been named "Leading Law Firm France" several times by German corporate lawyers.

Your advantage: one-stop-advice for Germany and France, quality, experience, speed and a very high availability.

Where it counts: Cologne | Paris | Lyon

We have a physical presence in Germany and France. Our focus on three important locations allows us to combine our strengths and improve our teamwork. We are probably the only law firm in Germany to offer such a large team of German and French attorneys able to advise both in German and French commercial law. Our offices in Paris and Lyon give us the necessary proximity to our French clients and courts and authorities.

Your advantage: short distances for personal meetings, local networking.

We speak your language.

All of the attorneys in our firm are trilingual (German, French, English). In addition to their studies in Germany and France, a number of them have also studied in other countries. We are able to prepare all contracts and legal documentation in English, German and French. To meet our quality standards also from the language perspective, we have a team of permanently employed and sworn translators with many years of experience in translating legal documents.

Your advantage: no language barriers, quick and easy communication in the language of your choice.

We are driven by our passion for our work.

We love what we do, and it shows. We keep it short and to the point. Our instructions will always be clear, and we act as your partners in risk.We listen carefully, try to understand your company and your specific environment and offer you concrete, practical solutions. We seek sustainable and trusting relationships with our clients and adapt our advice to the specific environment of the client and the players.

Your advantage: tailor-made solutions, practical feasibility and pleasure in working together.

We have a strong network.

Legal advice is only one aspect of our clients' projects. With us, you have direct access to all the other services you need for your business: accounting, tax, payroll management, recruitment, domicile services, banking and insurance services in Germany and France. This means that you do not have to buy the individual services for your project separately, but have one contact person for your entire project. We call this "Germany and France turnkey".

Your advantage: time and cost savings
