Our offices in Frankfurt and Hamburg underscore the firm’s commitment to Germany and Europe and its expanding international capabilities. Clients receive the legal experience and resources that come with a well-established, international law firm.

Bryan Cave has a long history of practicing in the German market and substantial experience working with clients doing business in Germany and across Europe, America and Asia.

We advise clients on all types of commercial transactions and have particular experience in cross-border arrangements, whether between companies established in different jurisdictions or in connection with the acquisition or sale of services or goods across borders.

We have successfully represented companies from a wide range of business sectors, in addition to advising investment banks, private equity houses, brokers and other financial services institutions.
