We offer German employment law advice and all necessary documentation tailor-made to your client’s needs. At reliable and fixed fees. On time.
In case your client intents to establish a subsidiary in Germany or wants to hire a first employee. Or he needs to appoint a new Managing Director, wants to hire a Freelancer or a Works Council is about to be elected in the German entity. He asks you for a recommendation for legal advice in Germany. You worry that your client is not happy, because services abroad are provided untimely and slow, without adequate knowledge of legal language and culture background and especially because estimated fees are exceeded. Such situation, for which you bear no responsibility except the choice of firm, can easily turn ugly and endanger your client relationship at home.

We will be available on phone or via mail for further questions or discussions with you and/or your client as long as needed to satisfy all client‘s needs.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
We charge a one-time fixed fee agreed on the time of engagement. This fee includes all documents, their individualisation and all necessary information about mandatory German employment laws as well as customary practices. A typical start-up set will be available for US$ 2,000 to 4,000 (depending on the size of operation). In any case we guarantee transparent and budget-oriented solutions, which will be considerably different from any charges based on the hourly fees.
WHAT IF YOUR CLIENT NEEDS MORE SERVICES?
We are closely working together with a boutique tax consultancy firm, which provides tax advice and day to day payroll services at fixed and reasonable monthly fees. As far as other areas of law are concerned e.g. corporate, IP or property laws we work with an established network of boutique firms which are able to provide the same high quality at reasonable (often fixed) fees. If your client needs additional employment services, such as the application for work permits or has specific requirements e.g. for negotiations with Works Councils and Trade Unions he can chose either from our fixed fee offers or retain us at reasonable (hourly) fees of well below € 300 net. Further it is our practice not to charge for full fees for travel times and we do not charge any ancillary costs (e.g. for secretarial services).
You can offer your client a high-quality service provided by experienced international lawyers at fixed and reasonable fees. You don’t need to worry any more about clients complaining about excessive or intransparent costs of foreign experts or about timelines not observed.
