Germany is one of the most attractive locations for investment worldwide

In the last years, Germany has attracted more investors from abroad than ever before. "Germany is the safe harbor of Europe and one of the fastest-growing industrial nations, which is attractive for investors", states Achim Hartig in the study of the company in charge of Germany's external business and the marketing of the Society "Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI)".

Reasons, why we are the best

Since 1998 we mainly work in business law and "aliens law" – though we prefer the term "immigration law", which is by far the more complete and up-to-date. We offer a long-standing expertise in both. Our highly specialized team of attorneys and legal staffs offer a nationwide network of contacts to immigration offices as well as competent entities responsible for decisions concerning self-employment (e.g. IHK – the Chamber of commerce and industry). We successfully assisted company founders and investors from all over the world.

vpmk legal services has the big asset of having represented almost exclusively international clients. We have a high expertise in consulting intercultural clients and multinational companies in diverse areas of law. Thus, we are perfectly capable to give answers to all you questions in inter-connected areas such as labor and corporate law, social and family law as well as real estate. With us, you will receive the best legal advice, which goes far beyond the questions of immigration law.

Our specialized corporate attorneys work closely with their colleagues from the immigration department. Right at the very outset of founding a company, we clearly set up the preconditions for the future visa to the purpose of self-employment or employment as a managing director of the company. Thus, any situation or problem that could come up during the immigration process is already solves during the step of the company formation, which avoids negative surprises.

When treating each case, a dedicated sense of service is paramount to the company. Your individual contact person with a legal background takes personally care of your matter and normally replies to your queries within one working day. The mandate-related support is regularly rendered in German and English, and the counselling by your attorney can also be offered in French or Spanish. Among our legal support stuff are native speakers in Russian, Ukrainian, Hebrew, Italian, French, Turkish and Mandarin, who are happy to offer interpreter and translator services.
