Corporate law is practised the world over. But laws are different in every jurisdiction. How can you be sure that you're both complying with the law and getting the best deal when operating in Germany?

You need lawyers who understand both the local law and the global landscape.

At Gowling WLG, we know how to steer international clients within Germany and beyond through the challenges associated with German corporate law. With on-the-ground corporate teams in Stuttgart and Munich, we're also tightly integrated with our offices across Europe, Canada, the Middle East and Asia.

Many of our lawyers have worked in-house, and truly understand the needs and demands of corporates. We're committed to giving you our total focus through a service that's both hands-on and partner-led.

We regularly support major listed (domestic and foreign) companies, medium-sized businesses and financial investors. We advise many of the family-controlled Mittelstand companies, many of which are true hidden champions.

We're also sector experts, particularly in the automotive field: Stuttgart is home to many industry titans, including hundreds of suppliers and big players in other related sectors, such as mechanical engineering, tech, banking and insurance. We understand the unique requirements of our clients in their respective sectors.

Areas we cover include:

  • Change of management
  • Compliance
  • Corporate governance
  • Corporate secretarial
  • General management and supervisory board matters
  • Reorganisations and restructurings
  • Shareholders' meetings
  • Succession
