Cross-border matters form a substantial part of FRANZ RECHTSANWÄLTE's legal advice.

We advise a large number of domestic and foreign companies and entrepreneurs in their international projects and transactions. Therefore, expertise when co-operating with foreign legal counsels and dealing with foreign jurisdictions is indispensable. Our lawyers either studied or worked abroad. They are skilled with sustainable international experience and contacts and are best suited to handle and organize cross-border matters.

One of our key expertises are German-Franco legal relationships – see our Practice Group “French Desk”.

In addition, we maintain valuable long-term relationships which are based on personal contacts to high qualified law firms in Europe, USA and the most important Asian countries as well as in all other relevant jurisdictions.
