Germany 2016: Practice Areas

An Introduction to the German Legal Marketplace

Germany possesses one of the leading but most complex legal markets in Europe, which is spread across large and small cities alike. Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich and Düsseldorf are centres of great and highly competitive legal activity; however, with regards to the development of various law firms, the country has seen many expand and others shut down operations entirely over the past year. Olswang, for example, has ceased business in Berlin, having lost 13 equity partners in June 2015. This leaves the firm with just one German base: Munich. Other firms have opted to strengthen their Frankfurt office and close down others, as exemplified by Hogan Lovells and Shearman & Sterling back in 2013. Clifford Chance has also suffered the departure of multiple partners to competitors.
