German Desk

The German Desk combines a group of lawyers from different practice groups with a particular focus on the German market, to assist international clients with their business in Germany. 

Our lawyers also advise German companies on their operations overseas, especially in Italy, Spain, Tunisia, the United Kingdom and North America where we operate with our own offices.  

The German law desk at Giambrone has years of experience in advising foreign clients in regard to German legal issues, particularly in the areas of corporate and labour law, international probate issues, drafting of agreements or in litigation and arbitration. The German Desk consists of attorneys from different practice areas, including corporate, litigation, immigration and commercial law

Our lawyers in the German Desk know the German-speaking countries´ legal systems as well as German-speaking countries´ business customs. They also have an awareness and understanding of the unique cultures in these countries. In addition, our team utilises its knowledge of the local markets in which you choose to do business, building effective bridges and providing you with an added competitive advantage. Several of the firm’s attorneys have studied and/or worked in the USA, UK and Ireland.

The clients of the German Desk may be German, Austrian and Swiss groups for their activities or those of their subsidiaries at international level as well as European and American companies doing business in Germany, Austria or Switzerland.

Our Global International Practice integrates German-speaking lawyers and tax advisers throughout the firm to serve your global needs. The members of our group speak your language and know your business practices and culture.


We regularly assist international companies from Europe, Asia and the U.S. in entering the German market and German companies in entering the international market. We collaborate closely with local chambers, tax advisors, banks, accountants and municipal and state development agencies to facilitate Greenfield investments.  For joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions in the E.U., Germany and beyond, we help identify and evaluate the target, negotiate and manage the transaction and integrate the new business venture.

International Trade

In today’s global business, companies must have contracts with international suppliers, customers and sales agents. Also, their import-export management must follow the laws of many nations, so we advise on German, E.U. and other applicable trade and customs laws.

Litigation and Dispute Resolution

We provide comprehensive advice and representation in national and international court and arbitration proceedings in Germany and worldwide.
