French Desk

Our French Desk supports French companies that are looking to establish themselves on the German market or are already active in Germany, as well as German companies that intend to become active on the French market. We have team members located in all of our offices and can manage mandates in French.

We advise on all corporate, labour and tax law issues, and on EU law. We assist, for example, with the conclusion of partnerships and strengthen and support companies when planning market entry and during all phases of their business.
