We work with a Europe-based network of legal professionals. Built over a period of two decades, our network includes more than 200 notaries, lawyers and judges, who occupy a range of responsible positions throughout Germany. Further, we maintain an ongoing roster of at least two Referendars (German law students), who, having completed about five years of full time university studies in law, are engaged in the final stage of two and a half years of practical training for admission to the legal profession in Germany.
