German Desk

in Luxembourg

Due to its location and its culture, Luxembourg has always had strong economic relations with German-speaking countries. As a matter of fact, Germany is one of the biggest Luxembourg’s trading partners; this reflects in the local life and in the different industries sectors where more and more German companies play an important role. Due to this large volume of trading, a lot of contractual relationships have been formed between Luxembourg and German companies in countless areas.

However, a lot of differences between the two legal systems still remain. The German Desk of CMS Luxembourg was created in 2012 in order to respond to the increasing needs of both Luxembourg companies who wish to operate in Germany and German companies who wish to operate in Luxembourg, whether or not they are established in the Grand Duchy. The lawyers who are part of our German Desk are fluent in at least three languages, including German, French and English. They are experts in their fields in both Luxembourgish and German law; some are even Avocat à la Cour in Luxembourg and Rechtsanwälte in Germany.

For that reason, they are able to advise Luxembourg and German clients in their native language and, at the same time, make the transition between the two legal systems that are involved, assuring the best possible implementation of their interest. Our German Desk covers all areas of business law across both jurisdictions and is experienced in advising German speaking clients.
