Digital transformation, regulation and intangible assets are transforming German – and international – businesses. Our expert lawyers are passionate about helping you navigate these changes to move your business forward.

The largest economy in Europe and the fifth largest in the world, Germany benefits from a highly skilled workforce and the position as one of the world's leading exporters. Know How and technology have always been core elements for the economic success of doing business in Germany.

Economic success also requires business minded lawyers who do not only understand the law but also the organisations and companies and their economic environment, like us. Whether you're a local or international business operating in Germany, you'll therefore benefit from our in-depth local knowledge, extensive cross-border experience and deep industry knowledge.

Operating in Germany for more than a decade, we have over 200 lawyers based in Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich as well as an additional presence in Berlin. Our German lawyers have helped some of the world’s largest organisations break into new and emerging markets, acquire and expand and protect their products.

All of our lawyers work closely with other experts in Bird & Bird offices across the world, where required to help you achieve your objectives. To find out more please contact our German Management Team, partners Sven-Erik Heun (Head of Country), Oliver Jan Jüngst and Dr. Michael Alt.
