At Geldards, we are enthusiastic about doing business with Germany. We have a deep commitment to promoting commercial and cultural relationships and can advise our clients fully on the business custom and practice of both countries.

Geldards LLP is one of only 2 English member firms of DIRO – a European wide network of German and German speaking lawyers.

Our longstanding experience of advising German-speaking clients with interests in the UK means that we have substantial knowledge of the regulatory and political concerns involved in cross-border transactions. Our German Desk appreciates the importance clients place upon legal advisers to ensure that their business interests are protected and represented effectively. We are committed to delivering a service which meets your requirements and exceeds your expectations – to that end, our team comprises both German native speakers and those who are fluent in German having worked and studied in the language.

As a full service legal firm, we are able to advise on all matters that a German client would need advice on, such as company structures, mergers and acquisitions, IP, employment, tax, commercial contracts, real estate, dispute resolution and insolvency. Furthermore, we have a track record of advising and supporting English subsidiaries of German parent companies. In this regard, we are able to support you in setting up the subsidiaries and in your business activities once they have been established.

We are always happy to talk to any prospective new clients on an initial "free of charge" basis. For all enquiries please contact Nino Simone, on +44 (0)1332 378320.
