French Desk

Germany offers great opportunities to French companies - Special features of the German market must be identified and risks must be managed.

Germany is France's most important trading partner worldwide, and France is Germany's second most important trading partner in Europe (as of 2017). The Brexit, it can be assumed, will be another positive impulse for German-French relations.

With its French Desk, BRL provides French clients with an efficient, trilingual (German, French and English) expert team that advises and supports clients on all legal and tax issues. The French Desk works for large (national and international) companies as well as medium-sized companies and start-ups, regardless of whether they are already active in Germany or are planning their first move to Germany.

At the same time, the consultants of the French Desk support German companies in their business activities in France and accompany them on the basis of many years of  expertise together with proven specialized French partner law firms.

Despite the geographical proximity, there are great differences between German and French culture as well as between both legal and tax systems. We transfer the rules for you to the other system and help you to bridge the differences - in your own language.

The French Desk team specializes in the following areas of business and tax law:

  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Business Law and Company Law
  • Private Equity, Venture Capital
  • International Tax Law
  • Corporate Tax Law
  • Taxation of Transactions
  • Employment Law
  • Real Estate / Real Estate Tax
  • Construction and Architects Law
  • Financing and Regulation of Financial Markets
  • Industrial Property, Copyright and Competition Law
  • Litigation and Arbitration
  • Tax Compliance

Do not underestimate the differences between the two countries. Contracts, agreements and expectations can vary greatly in both countries. BRL informs you from the beginning about all risks and opportunities and accompanies you reliably.
