BODENHEIMER frequently advise and represent clients from English-speaking countries doing business in Germany or other parts of continental Europe. Three of our attorneys are admitted in common law jurisdictions (England and Wales, New York). Additionally, partner Dr Rouven F Bodenheimer is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators in London. We are therefore ideally suited to handle the German-law aspects of cross-border disputes and non-contentious cases originating or involving common law jurisdictions.

In certain matters, we are also ourselves in a position to advise and represent clients in matters governed by the law of a common law jurisdiction. If required, we act alongside local counsel in such cases. Read more
