BEITEN BURKHARDT is a commercial law firm founded in Germany and active worldwide, with a range of expertise that covers all areas of commercial law relevant to our clients, whether listed companies, large medium-sized companies, multinational corporations, the public sector or foundations. This is one facet of BEITEN BURKHARDT.

Another facet is the individuality of each and every one of our 287 lawyers and partners.
