Over many years we have developed a unique Network of trusted service partners, which we draw on to guide and support your activities in the German market.
Market research – for this essential business development component we offer the full range of market information gathering and analysis through selected partners. We usually recommend a staged approach which saves unnecessary costs and allows for the clients ongoing input to the research process.
Legal support – in Germany it is often not necessary to engage an international law firm and local legal practices usually have substantially lower fees for the same quality of services. Initial discussions are free and we can arrange these for our clients as part of their market introduction.
Tax and accountancy – it is clearly essential to have competent advice from the outset on taxation issues. It is a complex area when working cross-border and the specialists in our Network – whether from the Big 4 or smaller firms – have all worked with international clients which are doing business in Germany.
Communications and branding – the client’s existing communications and marketing strategies have to be adapted to the German market. Building on research in combination with support from our various agency partners we will develop an outline strategy together with the client and then coordinate the detailed implementation.
Recruitment – before introducing clients to either multi-office agencies or specialist providers here we usually organise a workshop to ensure that there is an understanding of some of the main employment practices as well as the risks involved in being an employer in Germany.
