Enterprises in the traditional industrial sectors –  mechanical and plant engineering, metal and electrical industry, as well as conglomerates –  have been greatly influenced by globalisation over the past decades. Companies from the BRIC countries have positioned themselves alongside the established market players from Germany, USA and Japan and have developed increasingly fierce competitors. 

At the same time, the markets are constantly changing and growth in the emerging nations is providing new sales opportunities for investment goods “made in Germany”.

For many years we have been advising leading national and international enterprises of these industrial sectors, on their operations as well as on special projects, in the domestic market and with their global expansion. 

Our range of advice in the field of industrials includes:
  • Expansion through acquisitions, joint ventures or alliances
  • Tax-driven structurings
  • Compliance: management systems and individual aspects such as data protection or export controls
  • Antitrust and competition law
  • Distribution structures
