We are part of a global network
Asia is home to some of world’s largest and most dynamic economies. The continent offers attractive opportunities for companies looking to invest or wanting to set up in or broaden their business operations across its national markets.
Gleiss Lutz advises German firms on doing business in Asia while also, conversely, helping companies from the region enter or expand their activities in the German market. Our Asia team bridges the gap between the different legal and economic systems, helping our clients deal with the legal challenges of overseas markets and enabling them to overcome any cultural hurdles that they may encounter.
