On an international and national level, the firm advises clients on all aspects of corporate and commercial law.

The techniques and strategies used in mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance are constantly modified to the changing economic and legal realities brought on by ever-increasing globalization.

The same applies to commercial law, where the lawyers at Brödermann Jahn have cultivated their expertise in distribution, trade, sales, licensing, antitrust, competition, and customs and export control issues. This guarantees the firm’s high level of competence and sophistication when advising clients on commercial matters.

When it comes to dispute resolution, the firm is highly regarded and a sound partner – whether in mediation, arbitration or straightforward litigation, encompassing also the management of multi-jurisdictional disputes.
