Our team of highly specialised lawyers regularly works with US citizens and businesses.
We have a broad expertise dealing with the interface between the European and American legal systems especially in regard to international business law, tax law and inheritance law.
Our team of native German-speaking Attorneys-at-Law includes a dual-qualified lawyer, Dr. Stephan M. Ebner, who is also a practising lawyer in the State of New York. Dr Ebner is fluent in English.
We offer specialised advice and assistance to individuals and companies from the US who have businesses and/or property in Germany. This includes establishing businesses in Germany and structuring assets in a tax efficient manner. We also draft wills to ensure that assets are distributed in accordance with the wishes of our clients. Our expertise includes assisting in the administration of estates.
We have developed a broad network of affiliated law firms throughout the USA so that we can provide our clients with accurate advice in a timely manner.
We are able to form specialist transnational teams to represent our clients, including in the US State and Federal Courts.
As we do not need to maintain expensive offices in US cities, we are able to offer our clients competitive fees.
It is our commitment to actively engage in professional organizations in Germany and the US.
For example, we are a corporate member of the Family Firm Institute (FFI) in Boston, Massachusetts.
Dr. Ebner is a member of the FFI New York Regional Committee, which provides us the opportunity to participate in shaping current US pro bono legal practice.
Furthermore, we are a corporate member of the German American Chamber of Commerce New York (GACCNY).
