Newsletter International Briefing December 2021

Dear Friends,

A new name, a new look, a new European alliance: ADVANT.

ADVANT is an alliance of BEITEN BURKHARDT, Altana and Nctm, including more than 600 professionals in 13 locations across Europe and beyond. Built on the core values of trust, excellence, and efficiency, we have combined forces to provide legal services to those seeking to expand in or into Europe. We retain our excellent national practices and add a new layer of European expertise, helping clients achieve their goals throughout the continent.

In this first edition of our ADVANT Beiten International Briefing, we have compiled articles and information that we hope will be of use and interest to you and your clients. ESG principles impact legislation and jurisprudence in all spheres of business law and we give an overview of the most important developments in Germany, including the German Act on Due Diligence in the Supply Chain.

Another important trend is the strengthening of consumer protection – Germany implements the EU Digital Content Directive and passes a new act on Fair Consumer Contracts, and we inform you about the most relevant new rules. Please also take note of the new rules for digital sales and sales of goods: the new EU directive will require a thorough review of terms and conditions.

New legislation on Foreign Direct Investment has been a recurring topic in 2021, and our ADVANT alliance partners Altana and Nctm inform on the French and Italian Foreign Direct Investment regimes.

We wish you and your families and friends all the best for the festive
season, take a break, and stay safe!

Looking forward to continuing this conversation in 2022, kind regards,

Prof. Dr Hans-Josef Vogel
Dr Christian von Wistinghausen
