German-French Business Law

German-French Business Law

From our Düsseldorf office, we advise and support our clients coming into Germany from the French-speaking world. We render assistance with respect to their business activities in Germany, in particular with respect to the establishment of subsidiaries or branch offices, the drafting and negotiation of corporate, commercial and distribution agreements with their German business partners, as well as with respect to the drafting of general contract terms. We represent our French-speaking clients in and out of court throughout Germany.

 

In addition, we render advice to our German clients who wish to set up or change a distribution structure in France. We advise on the more appropriate law by weighing the advantages and disadvantages of the potentially applicable legal provisions of France and Germany. Finally, there are numerous contacts to French law firms that can be used to provide effective legal assistance to our German clients when they become active in France.
