Schumann Burghart LLP

We are a US-based corporate law firm that specializes in representing German-speaking companies. We currently offer advice to some 180 German-speaking companies and manage more than 150 of our clients’ subsidiaries in all 50 US states.

Our clients include well-known medium-sized companies, publicly traded groups, public bodies, non-profit organizations, and individuals. Our function as secretary in US companies has given us unique and extensive knowledge of the specific characteristics relevant to our clients’ industry sectors, especially with regard to relationships between Germany/Austria/Switzerland and the US. Our clients benefit from the fact that the advice we offer is, by comparison, much more profound and can often save a lot of time and money.

We are the only firm in the US offering advice in all fields of law, from establishing a company to drafting contracts to litigation, in the German language. All of our attorneys work together as one strong team, and all are admitted to practice law in both Germany and the US. We are familiar with both legal systems and can help you achieve your business goals in the US market.

Our starting point is always to give our clients prompt answers including a specific, recommended course of action. For us, this means laying out the potential risks, while at the same time developing practical solutions together with our clients. With our business-minded approach and our ability to speak your language, we can help you achieve the best results, quickly and with fewer misunderstandings.

We aim to build lasting, personal relationships with our clients. This means that we are always available to answer your questions and do not delegate the work to a rotating pool of attorneys. Honesty, transparency and a reliable partnership are very important to us in our work.

We work in close cooperation with the German chambers of commerce and are a trusted firm in the Austrian International Chamber of Commerce in the USA.
