Gleiss Lutz has excellent ties with leading independent law firms across Europe, and not only advises German firms on doing business in the region but also helps companies enter or expand their activities in the German market. Our lawyers bridge the gap between the respective legal and economic systems, helping our clients deal with the legal challenges of foreign markets and delivering a responsive and effective tailored service.

In Continental Europe, we have further developed a non-exclusive network with three other leading law firms: Chiomenti in Italy, Cuatrecasas in Spain and Portugal, and Gide in France.

Together, with 2,000 lawyers in 27 offices, we provide a full range of services, offering integrated advice to clients in complex cross-border transactions, international projects and litigation.

Our cooperation on joint projects strengthens our ability to provide seamless service. With this network, we can offer clients the best services in each country, as each of these firms is a leading independent law firm, with the same vision for client service: understanding clients’ needs, quick response, effective communication and business focus.
