Our German-French team (Deutsch-französisches Transaktionsteam) is an unrivalled force in the market to support you closely in your investments and secure your operations in all areas of inbound and outbound transactional and corporate law, with customized, tailored and innovative solutions.
We regularly advise our German-speaking clients seeking to develop their activities in France, as well as French clients investing in German-speaking markets and wishing to be assisted in mastering the subtleties of the German, Austrian and Swiss legal systems. Our experts have advised numerous large listed companies as well as Mittelstandsunternehmen in Germany (inbound) and France (outbound).
Karl Hepp de Sevelinges, a German-French partner, leads the team of eight German-speaking French and/or German lawyers, who have studied law in Germany or developed their expertise in German law firms.
Our team is thus able to demonstrate a high level of expertise and in-depth knowledge of legal and business practices in German-speaking countries. Our experts are in a unique position to fully grasp the specific requirements of our German-speaking clients on cross-border transactions and to provide them with tailored advice adapted to their changing environment. Our lawyers have an analytical capacity and a facility to decomplex the legal and commercial situations related to the German-speaking markets for the benefit of our French clients for a successful completion of their operations in the relevant countries.
To ensure that our clients receive the best advice at each stage of their project, our team relies on the firm’s other areas of expertise in tax law, litigation & arbitration, family businesses, competition, IP/IT, labor law, public law, real estate, regulatory, etc., as well as on our unique presence in Europe, Africa and Eastern Europe.
The team also relies on its historical network of partner firms in German-speaking countries with which we work on a regular and fully integrated basis. In order to maintain these partnerships in a structured and sustainable manner, team members are regularly seconded to our partners. We can thus guarantee you seamless legal advice, with our team acting as a single point of contact for its clients.
