In 2023, Spencer West’s international presence extended to Germany, with offices opening in the financial district of Frankfurt and the country’s vibrant capital. Our Berlin office caters to the city’s diverse array of international and domestic companies, but also extends to foreign investors and entrepreneurs.
Often considered the epicentre of Germany’s venture and digital business arena, Berlin has gained status as a global city and hub for start-ups, and as such has a growing demand for legal services in the corporate and commercial sectors representing clients from listed companies and private equity sponsors, often within the fields of technology, venture capital and media. Our Berlin office also provides services pertaining to all aspects of employment and labour law.
Our work in Germany often encompasses cross-border transactions, international arbitration, and international trade law. Clients benefit from lawyers’ first-hand experience with the strict regulations and ethical standards that govern the German legal market. This expert status is garnered from our lawyers’ wealth of experience in cross-border commercial litigation and employment law, including within the German courts, and in-depth knowledge of national regulations and international conventions and cooperation with clients, advisors and law firms in different jurisdictions.
With 20 offices internationally, clients benefit from our practice groups’ close collaboration across the Spencer West family throughout its various regions. This enables us to provide our clients in Germany with the full resources of an international firm from the single, local point of contact in our Berlin office.
