Facilitating market entry in Germany

25 years of legal expertise for
your market entry in Germany

For 25 years we have been supporting Nordic and international entrepreneurs to successfully expand onto the German market. Our trademark: with our Nordic perspective we guide you quickly, pragmatically and in a solution-oriented way. As legal counsellors we know how to get legal obstacles and hurdles out of your way that are related to founding a business in Germany. We provide you with individual advisory on the setting-up of your business and take care of the necessary documents, contracts and legal steps – so that you can focus exclusively on launching your business.

 

This is how we can specifically assist you – three cases in point that illustrate how we can facilitate your market entry in Germany

Do you wish to establish a new corporation, a branch office or a subsidiary in Germany?
We will take care of all the necessary legal steps – be it advisory on the adequate legal form, the drafting of the articles of incorporation or the management contracts.

Do you need German contracts for you subsidiary?
In Germany, usually different standard contracts are required as opposed to those common in other countries. We will adapt your contracts and Terms of Service efficiently to the requirements of the German market. In order to do that we do not only speak the language of German law, but also Danish, Norwegian and Swedish as well as English.

Are you trying to get a foothold on the German market via distributor agreements or agency contracts? Are you planning to employ German staff?
We will help you with all legal matters regarding labour law and distribution law, draft employment contracts and advise you on, e.g., organisational issues, collective wage agreements or in contract termination cases.

As a matter of course we will draft and negotiate the necessary contracts for you. Thus you will be aware of the opportunities and risks right from the beginning and will be spared some unpleasant surprises later on.

In particular, we advise you on the following issues when you enter the German market:

  • Market entry in Germany
  • Transnational legal matters
  • Contract arrangement in transnational cases
  • Company formation and ongoing consultancy services on matters of corporate law
  • Arrangement of authorised dealership agreements and agency contracts
  • Arrangement of management contracts
  • Ongoing advisory on matters of corporate law (e.g., shareholder resolutions, change of registered office)
  • Advisory to the managing director
  • Intellectual property rights and trademark law
