The UK and Germany have been important business partners over the last decade. Germany is at present Britain's number two export market, and number one for import investment into the UK. Hundreds of thousands of jobs are sustained by investment from the other. As a result, there is a need for expert legal advice in a variety of legal disciplines covering Anglo-German relations.

As the only North West law firm with a dual qualified Solicitor and Rechtsanwältin, we are able to offer a unique German service.  The George Davies German Desk brings together German speaking specialists from a number of different departments across the firm to offer English legal advice to German speaking clients and German law advice to English clients. We already act for a number of UK companies who are subsidiaries of German companies and have a wealth of experience advising German companies and individuals on various English legal matters.

Our areas of expertise include 

  • Commercial Property
  • Corporate/Commercial
  • Cross Border Enforcement of German Judgments
  • Cross Border Inheritance
  • Debt Recovery
  • Employment
  • Family
  • Insolvency
  • Litigation/Dispute Resolution/Mediation 


If you would like to discuss any of the above, please contact a member of our GD German Desk team below to arrange a FREE no obligation meeting.
