Christoph Schröder advises companies on commercial and corporate law.
He is an expert in supply chain compliance. This includes the German Supply Chain Act as well as Europe-wide and foreign regulations on corporate due diligence and reporting obligations. In this area, he supports clients, for example, in determining the applicability of legal regimes, setting up a risk management system, conducting risk analyses, drafting contracts and internal guidelines, as well as in infringement and liability cases.
Another focus of Christoph’s work is the China business. He has been assisting German and Chinese companies with their investments and other activities in the respective other country for many years. He is familiar with the typical expectations and business customs in both countries and brings his experience to bear in mutual communication. This is often of decisive importance for the successful conclusion of a transaction. He often negotiates, presents and communicates in Chinese.
Christoph has been a lawyer at CMS in Hamburg since 2006. From 2012 to 2020, he worked in our Shanghai office.
He gives presentations and publishes articles, in particular on investments in Germany and on supply chain compliance.
