European Law

Different markets call for a different legal team.

Don’t let cultural differences become a barrier for your future business.

Foresee the unforeseen with experts who understand Transatlantic trade.

With our own US, German, and Spanish licensed attorneys and with our Europe office centrally located in Barcelona, we are able to offer our clients a comprehensive range of legal services tailored to their changing needs.

Our familiarity with multiple European legal systems gives our clients the support and resources they need to succeed in their European business ventures. Harris Bricken’s experienced Europe team understands the complex business and corporate laws that govern transatlantic trade and applies that knowledge when and where our clients require strategic guidance.

Our European practice focuses on assisting US companies with the legal issues related to taking their business to Europe and operating there and in assisting private investors with their direct investments in Europe, particularly in Germany and Spain. We also have extensive experience assisting European companies with their US legal matters. We help our clients in commencing operations in the US and with any subsequent legal matters.

The lead attorney of our European practice group, Nadja Vietz, splits her time between our Barcelona and Seattle offices, ensuring that both our US and our European clients have access to comprehensive legal support both at home and abroad.
