German Desk

In 2019, in the structure of SKS Confidence Law Firm, a specialized practice was created to support projects in the German-Russian context (German Desk).

Since the founding of our company, a fairly large part of our clients are companies and individuals from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

In the meantime, there is no need to know about it. ”

Over the years of practice, we have accumulated significant experience in supporting projects and successfully protecting the interests of this category of clients, since we have everything you need for this: experience, knowledge of German and European law, fluency in German and understanding of the business processes of companies from Germany and other countries EU (need for an interdisciplinary and intercultural competence).

Our lawyers are in constant contact with German colleagues (including members of the German-Russian Association of Lawyers (DRJV)), and our office in Germany allows our clients to receive legal advice at their location.

Thanks to our partner network in Germany, within the framework of the German Desk, we are also pleased to offer legal support for Russian companies and individuals in Germany. We will be happy to advise and support on the issues of launching a business on the market of Germany and the European Union, legal aspects of doing business, specifics of contractual relationships and many other issues.

Wir sind für Sie da!
