Corporate Vision

Our law firm was founded in 1994, by Emil Epp, whose vision was to provide sound legal and business advice to German, Austrian and Swiss companies with subsidiaries in France.  Likewise, our firm assists French companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland from our offices in Germany.

Our focus is to help your company realize its business objectives, and we work closely with you to transact your international business.

Our legal speciality is French-German business law.  Our casework is exclusively cross-border, and cooperates with the legal and fiduciary activities of local businesses.

If your company has a legal dispute, we are prepared to defend your interests in all German and French jurisdictions.

Listening to our international clients needs has allowed us to create a comprehensive network of qualified consultants, capable of providing legal and business services to German, Austrian and Swiss companies doing business in France.  As a courtesy to our clients we have helped develop a unique website featuring select law firms abroad with expertise similar to ours within their home country and German speaking countries (www.cbbl-lawyers.de).
