What others say

Luxembourg has strong economic relations with German-speaking countries and in particular Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Companies from these countries are playing an increasing role in local life and industry sectors. The aim of Wildgen’s German Desk is to respond to the needs of this recent trend and to assist its clients with in-depth local and cross-border legal and regulatory expertise.

The multidisciplinary dedicated team, led by Partner Mevlüde-Aysun Tokbag, Rechtsanwältin, serves German-speaking clients, irrespective whether they are part of the German business community in Luxembourg or located in German-speaking countries searching for a Luxembourg full-service law firm. It includes several German-national lawyers, admitted on both Luxembourg and German bars, who assist clients and partners in their native language and who understand both cultural background and local, legal and regulatory constraints.

Desk members speak three to four languages and are committed to quality of services and successful growth of businesses. They combine the expertise of different practice areas:

  • Corporate law,
  •  Investment funds,
  • Banking & finance,
  • Tax,
  • IP/TMT,
  • Litigation and arbitration.

Wildgen’s German Desk cooperates closely with local authorities, banks, accountants and other providers to support clients in their entry into and operation in Luxembourg. It also maintains strong relationships with a large number of law firms in German-speaking countries in order to provide support to local companies operating in these jurisdictions.
