How to contact German law firms


If you are about to move to Germany, have a business that has customers or commercial partners in Germany, or are being sued by a business or individual from Germany, the help and support of specialist German lawyers can be absolutely vital.

How we can help

If you are looking for information on a point of commercial or will law in Germany, we can save you a great deal of time by either recommending a solicitor in Germany or putting you in touch with a UK solicitor specialised in German law.
We work with firms who focus on:

  • Commercial law, and
  • Wills and probate law

It is advisable to seek local legal representation if you are thinking of setting up in business in Germany and need help finding out how corporate and commercial laws there will affect you, and the same situation is true if you want to create a will or sort out probate.

The jurisdiction

Germany is a federal country so there is a division of judicial authority between the Federation and the individual states (Länder). This makes it particularly important to find lawyers in the location relevant to you.

As a member of the EU, Germany’s legislation, to an extent, also reflects the European Conventions which apply in other member states. However, as every country interprets and implements European laws in different ways, it is essential to consult lawyers specialised in Germen law for expert advice.

It is easy to think that because Germany is part of the EU its legal framework is identical to the UK’s. In reality, there are major differences that you and your business should be aware of.

When you need to handle the jurisdictions of the UK and Germany together, the help of German law firms or UK lawyers specialised in the local law can ensure every step you take is legal and in the best interests of you or your business.

International trade

As many businesses now trade internationally and people have become more mobile across the EU, understanding the various jurisdictions that you or your company might come into contact with is now more important than ever.

Locating German law firms you can trust and rely upon is the first hurdle you must clear. Contact Law not only has many German law firms available, these law firms are also recommended by Contact Law.

This means in practice that you can be confident that the German law firms you do use can deliver a high level of professional service. We also have an extensive network in the UK that specialise in German law.
