UK & Ireland

Gleiss Lutz assists German companies doing business in the UK and Ireland as well as British and Irish companies doing business in Germany. Germany enjoys a long history of economic relations with the UK and Ireland alike. For both economies, Germany is a key trading partner in both goods and services.

In 2022, Gleiss Lutz opened its own office in London, which advises on German and EU law. Gleiss Lutz is also part of a close network comprising the leading independent law firms in the region, with whom we have successfully collaborated on numerous projects. This gives us the flexibility to put together hand-picked teams tailored to our clients’ specific needs.
