Newsletter International Briefing, March 2019

Dear reader,

We have compiled a broad array of topics of interest to international business and international law practioners, with contributions from many of our practice groups, ranging from Corporate Law to Tax to IP / IT.

Since the beginning of this year stricter rules for controlling and approving foreign (non EU) direct investment apply in Germany and the EU just published a framework for screening of foreign direct investments into the Union on 21 March 2019. You will find updates thereof herein.

We also inform on experiences on cross-border conversion of a German GmbH and relocation of its registered office within the EU, also taking into consideration the reforms proposed by the EU Company Law Package in this respect.

From a tax perspective you should be aware of new recent legislative initiative regarding a reform of real estate transfer tax in share deals. The proposed legislation may require a different structuring and therefore should be kept in mind in M&A transactions involving real estate.

Finally, our IP and IT colleagues showcase two interesting cases regarding data protection and trade secret protection as well as on the amendements of the German Trademarks Act applicable since January, implementing an EU Directive.

Last but not least we would like to inform you that the new edition of our investment guide “Investing in Germany” is now available in English and Chinese for download here.

We hope that you will find the information provided helpful in your daily business.

We already look forward to seeing many of you at the IBA Conference in Barcelona or ABA Spring Conference in Vancouver!

Best regards,
Prof Dr Hans-Josef Vogel
