Business law advice in Europe is international by definition. Graf von Westphalen supports your business expansion in Europe and to the emerging markets of China, Russia and Turkey. Located at the heart of Europe, Germany is the largest single economy in the European Union. In what is a challenging environment of 27 jurisdictions and more than 400 million people, it is our commitment to take care of your legal challenges not only in Germany, but across the whole continent. Europe is our home market. Graf von Westphalen is one of the leading law firms in EU law and foreign trade. In addition, many of our lawyers are admitted to practice law in foreign jurisdictions and have graduated from law schools abroad (China, England & Wales, France, Italy, Spain, Russia, USA). We pool this experience in dedicated Country Desks. Each Country Desk offers the expertise of lawyers with specialist knowledge in those foreign jurisdictions. Apart from our presence in all major economic centers in Germany, we have offices abroad in Alicante, home of the European Trade Marks and Designs Office, in Brussels, host of the major EU institutions, and in the fast-growing markets of Istanbul and Shanghai. We maintain strong ties with leading, independent law firms around the globe and with our legal networks.
We provide a one-stop service in cross-border matters by putting together integrated international teams of specialist lawyers on a case-by-case basis. As international project leaders, we coordinate the work within the team and regularly serve as the single point of contact for our clients.
