Private Strafverfolgung im Vereinigten Königreich – eine echte Alternative?
Our specialists in London combine German-speaking lawyers from across our contentious and non-contentious practice groups, who are uniquely placed to act on matters with a German angle.
We have a clear understanding of the cultural, commercial and legal differences, and the challenges that may arise when a matter involves German documents and communications. We assist German individuals or businesses when facing legal issues governed by English law and especially within the context of Brexit.
We use that knowledge to a competitive advantage for our clients, whether our clients are party to a contract with an English law provision, want to bring proceedings in the United Kingdom or proceedings are being brought against them, own or want to build a business in the United Kingdom, or any other challenges they might face. We communicate with our clients in German and liaise with our German offices in Düsseldorf and Hamburg who are able to provide German law expertise if required.
The team is renowned for advising leading commercial entities, states and individuals in matters of English law, particularly in the areas of dispute resolution (litigation and arbitration), regulatory issues, corporate law, banking, insurance, construction, aviation.
