Germany is an export-oriented economy and an importer of goods, raw materials and energy worth billions of euros. As the largest economy in the EU and an import-export nation with a high foreign trade ratio, the retail & consumer products sector is of particular importance. Germany is an essential marketplace for both FMCG companies and manufacturers of slow-moving consumer goods and luxury products, and for trading companies of almost all sectors and sizes.
Büsing Müffelmann & Theye advises national medium-sized companies as well as internationally operating large corporations. We assist multinational concerns with their business activities in Germany. The legal matters relevant to retailers and the consumer goods industry are as broad as the range of activities of our clients.
We are equipped with the required market and industry knowledge and know-how in all relevant legal areas, notably commercial and distribution law, employment and corporate law, competition and IT law, supply chain management obligations, sustainability, digitalization and artificial intelligence.
