Expansion abroad, esp. Expansion of companies to Germany
The lawyers at GRIP LEGAL have comprehensive experience with the legal systems of other countries, e.g. because of time spent abroad, activities for international law firms, admission as attorney-at-law in the U.S. federal state of New York and advising on international transactions and arbitration proceedings. On the basis of this collective experience and outstanding connections at reliable, high-class law firms abroad we support clients in their international expansion plans. We consult with them in particular on the choice of a suitable distribution and corporate structure, as well as on labor law stipulations and compliance. For companies abroad we are the partner to support their expansion plans to Germany. With our expertise in particular, we can make different legal principles more understandable to companies from common law countries and facilitate market access with no legal and taxation questions left unaddressed. For this reason, the lawyers of GRIP LEGAL are also listed as contacts to advise on market access in Germany for countries from abroad.

Legal and taxation questions regarding Anglo-Saxon trusts
Anglo-Saxon trusts are a common instrument in the U.S.A. and in other Anglo-Saxon countries to preserve assets within the family, to simplify the administration of the estates and to plan the succession. As the trust is an unknown entity in German law, legal and taxation challenges ensue as soon as individuals resident in Germany are named as beneficiaries or when German assets are to be transferred. Unregulated, this can lead to a tax burden of more than 90 percent. We support you with our long experience of obligations relating to tax registration and declaration. We are the interface between trustee and beneficiary and together we create solutions for the future. Here we have been working successfully for many years with our reliable, long-term partners in the U.S.A., England and Australia.
