Business life is becoming more and more international and - as a result - national and international legal systems are becoming more and more closely linked as well. It is therefore essential to be able to resort to the services of lawyers who can provide competence and experience in different jurisdictions. Our law firm is facing up to this challenge: In addition to strengthening our existing cooperation agreements with foreign colleagues in their own countries, we have also developed specialties of our own to support international business transactions between Germany and China on the one hand and Germany and Spain / South America on the other.

Other geographical areas that we are active in are the growth regions of Eastern Europe and Russia.

We focus on providing comprehensive legal support for small and medium-sized enter-prises (SMEs) in Germany and abroad. This includes both assisting German companies in the economic areas mentioned, i.e. in particular China and Spain, and also assisting foreign companies on the German market. We have core competencies infields that are particularly relevant to SMEs: Corporate/M&A, Commercial, Real Estate, Intellectual Property, Foreign Investment, Litigation and Arbitration.

Having an office in Shanghai, we are able to boast particular competence and experience in matters of Chinese commercial law and its practical application. In addition, through our offices in Hannover and Shanghai we maintain close contacts with a number of other law firms in Asia, including in Singapore and Hong Kong, with which we collaborate regularly on particular cases. Our business with Spain involves on the one hand maintaining cooperative relationships with legal practices in the economic centres of Madrid and Barcelona, while on the other hand we also cooperate, especially in the field of real estate, with smaller law firms in the coastal regions and on the Spanish islands. This structure enables us to select the most suitable cooperation partner for any particular client's business. We are planning to set up an office of our own to coordinate our activities in Spain and South America.
