German Practice REGIONAL PRACTICES

Our internationally connected lawyers in Berlin and Frankfurt counsel clients on complex matters at the intersection of law, business and policy.


WilmerHale's German attorneys advise in integrated teams across our offices in North America, Europe and Asia at the very top of the legal profession, offering a cutting-edge blend of capabilities that equips them to handle cases of any complexity. With close ties to our office in Brussels/EU Practice, the de facto European Union capital, and its premier practices in European law and European regulation, our German Practice is well positioned to handle "bet the company" issues of the highest significance and help our international clients to reach their business goals in Germany and Europe. WilmerHale became one of the first US firms to open an office in Berlin, the capital of unified Germany, in 1993. With the 2008 addition of an office in Frankfurt, Germany's business and banking hub, the practice has harnessed WilmerHale's international strengths to provide legal representation critical to the success of our clients.
