Germany: Banking and finance

Within Structured finance and securitisation, Sidley Austin LLP is a third tier firm,

Sidley Austin LLP is seeking to develop its practice beyond its excellent reputation for CMBS transactions work but suffered the departure of Jérôme Friedrich to Oppenhoff & Partner in August 2013, after Oliver Kessler had moved to the same firm in January 2013. The highly regarded Jens Rinze remains, ‘knows his stuff’ and is set to rebuild the team, which acted for Norddeutsche Landesbank Luxembourg on the €45m securitisation of Hansa Group’s trade receivables and advised Hatfield Philips on CMBS loan restructurings.

  • GSK Update: Proposal for Uniform Protection of Trade Secrets Throughout Europe

    In the information society trade secrets are among the most important assets of any business. The quantity and quality of the trade secrets represent a substantial part of the company's assets. In the European Union there are currently varying levels of protection, insofar as trade secrets are legally protected at all. This hinders cross-border business and companies that operate internationally are faced with legal uncertainty. The EU Commission now wants to change this and has submitted a proposal for a uniform level of protection and protective system across Europe.
  • GSK Newsletter: Taxation of Cross-Border Transactions in Germany

    There are a number of ways how a foreign entity or private individual can pursue business activities in Germany. First, you can become active without creating a physical presence in Germany simply by supplying goods and services to German clients from abroad. Second, the foreign business might establish a fixed place in Germany (e.g. a permanent establishment) from which it pursues its German activities. Third, the foreign business might set up a German subsidiary either as a partnership or as a corporation. Last but not least, collective investment schemes, whose taxation regime has been extensively reorganized recently, might also be an interesting alternative for foreign investors. Which route to follow will mainly depend on the kind and the size of the business activities to be carried out in Germany or with German clients as well as on tax considerations that will have an impact on the decisions to be made. This  GSK Tax Newsletter  shall provide a first introduction to the taxation issues a foreign business considering to expand its activities to Germany will have to take into account. We would be pleased to help you with any questions in this regard!
