AmCham Germany is registered in the German Lobbyregister for the purpose of representation of interests toward the German Bundestag and the German Federal Government. AmCham Germany carries out advocacy in the sense of the Lobbyregister Act and on the basis of the Code of Conduct.

Introductory remarks will be given by Theresa Winkels, AmCham Germany Chair, Regional Chapter North Rhine-Westphalia, and Director of the Düsseldorf Office of Economic Development and Jay Carreiro, Commercial Consul, U.S. Consulate General Düsseldorf. In the following webinar, Dr. Marc Seeger, Dr. Catharina Klumpp, LL.M., Lennart Schüssler, Dr. Matthias Spilker, LL.M., and Felix Schmidtke of the global law firm Bird & Bird LLP will demystify the typical legal pitfalls of investing in Germany. Participants will receive brief overviews on the legal frameworks for employment, data usage as well as protection, and supply chain compliance in Germany and why these, albeit different from the U.S., still allow U.S. companies to successfully conduct their businesses in Germany. In addition, Eric Wallner and Daniel Düren of NRW.Global Business will give an insight on how transatlantic business development, with a focus on Foreign Direct Investment, can be successful by seeking assistance from a state-owned trade and investment agency.
