German Desk

in China

Are you a Chinese company looking to enter the German market? Or perhaps you already have operations in Germany and wish to expand them? Whatever your industry or requirement, we can help you tap into the opportunities offered by Europe’s largest economy.

We have extensive experience of working with Chinese clients, making us the perfect partner for all your legal advice needs. Our China Desk experts bridge the language and cultural differences to deliver effective, efficient support. You also benefit from our local presence at major commercial centres throughout Germany and our strong network of contacts.

Doing business in Germany involves dealing with a complex and very different legal environment. Unfamiliar administrative procedures and business practices likewise pose challenges that can derail your plans. Our special team of lawyers serving Chinese clients includes Chinese nationals based in Germany and German lawyers based in China, allowing us to provide relevant advice tailored to your specific needs. All members of the team are fluent in Mandarin and familiar with Chinese culture and business habits.   In addition to excellent German and Chinese network partners, we operate and support a number of initiatives and platforms in China to bring Chinese and German companies closer together and promote topics around capital markets and investment. These include the Private Equity Round Table, which we organise jointly with Deutsche Börse AG, and several exclusive workshops and forums on IPOs, M&A and PE involving investors, banks, auditors and other specialists.

Clients who choose CMS benefit from access to a one-stop service – we are among a very small number of firms that can provide legal advice across all areas of commercial law, including tax law. This technical ability is backed by sector-specific teams that bring together our expertise around individual industries and enable us to understand your business. We can also help you expand into other European markets and beyond – via our own offices and through our membership of the World Law Group.

Our China outbound service is ready to assist you with every aspect of your activities:
