Our practice has a strong international dimension.

We regularly advise and represent clients from outside of Germany in matters of German law, including transactions and corporate or commercial issues as well as disputes in German courts and German or international arbitration tribunals. In his capacity as notary, Hans-Michael Giesen frequently records complex English-language deeds in cross-border transactions. Alfried Heidbrink has considerable experience as an arbitrator in international arbitration proceedings.

We also assist our German clients with their outbound legal needs by referring them to – and, where requested, coordinating the work of - professionals abroad. In doing so, we rely on our vast network of long-standing professional contacts with lawyers and firms in almost all relevant jurisdictions.

Our education and professional experience has helped us develop a thorough understanding of different legal systems and their cultural underpinnings. This is one reason why international work is what we enjoy most about our practice.
