Care Market Lawyers

As the population in Germany ages, care and retirement homes are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the country. As such, they are attracting increasing attention from investors. A major factor here is that demand for care services is largely independent of the economic cycle. The high potential for consolidation in the sector is also a powerful driver: investment in social welfare facilities offers attractive prospects.
