BEITEN BURKHARDT is a commercial law practice founded in Germany and active worldwide, with a range of expertise that covers all areas of commercial law relevant to our clients, whether listed companies, large medium-sized companies, multinational corporations, the public sector or foundations. This is one facet of BEITEN BURKHARDT.

Another facet is the individuality of each and every one of our 275 lawyers and partners. As a client, you are not speaking to BEITEN BURKHARDT, an anonymous law office, but rather to a strategic and entrepreneurial thinking and acting lawyer, tax advisor or auditor who will individually and confidentially advise and accompany you in all areas of commercial law. And come to a customised solution in close consultation with you.

We advise, support, and represent you at 4 locations in Germany, 2 locations in Russia as well as 1 location in China and in Brussels with competence centres for French-German, Italian-German, Spanish-German and Dutch-German economic relations – and with a global network of first-class local law offices.
