Français: Frankreich (France)

French Desk


France and Germany have had close economic relations for decades and the links between numerous companies in both countries are correspondingly close. Our competence team for France and the French-speaking countries consists of legal and tax advisors and has been accompanying companies from both countries in their mutual trade relations for years. In France, we have established connections to renowned law firms, which we can involve in the consultation at any time if necessary.

We are involved in the German-French Business Club in North Rhine-Westphalia. Here, competence team member Dr. Georg Jaster is currently a member of the board.

We also have a wide range of relationships in francophone Africa, which are based, among other things, on Dr. Georg Jaster's several-year stay in Madagascar. Dr. Jaster and his team are able to provide competent support to German companies, especially in questions of participation in public tenders, investments and procurement in francophone Africa.

We can assist you in these areas:

  • Commercial and contract law
  • Distribution law and franchising
  • Corporate law, M&A
  • Business start-up/market entry consulting
  • Transport, forwarding and logistics, railway law
  • Tax law and tax optimisation
  • Participation in public tenders, investments and procurement in Francophone Africa
