We guide Japanese companies to success.

Germany and Japan have two of the strongest economies in the world, and relations between the two countries have never been so important. Both Japan and Germany face similar challenges related to their ageing economies, but they also share similar strengths in the automobile and pharmaceutical industries.

These professionals represent the interests of more than 400 Japanese firms in Germany with a wide range of services, from international taxation to mergers and acquisitions.
