On the heels of the Chinese government’s initiative “Made in China 2025”, which is driving the broad upgrade of the country’s industries, the family-owned professional services firm Rödl & Partner anticipates the further growth of trade between China and Germany. An embodiment of the New Silk Road, increased trade and knowledge-sharing between the two countries have stimulated Rödl & Partner’s business, as it is well positioned to serve markets from either end.

Apart from guiding German family-owned companies that expand into markets in China and Asia, the Nuremberg-based firm provides streamlined professional services to Chinese investors exploring opportunities in Europe, especially within the economically stable and hi-tech haven of Germany. With wholly owned offices and multilingual staff present in 106 locations worldwide, including four in China alone, Rödl & Partner brings together investors and businesses across continents to achieve mutual understanding and success.

“As a firm with a global presence stretching from São Paulo to Shanghai, we have a broader and more informed perspective of businesses and markets,” says Dr Christian Rödl, chairman of the board and managing partner, and an honorary professor at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. “We understand the needs of investors, but we also see the concerns of the investment targets.”

Rödl & Partner offers personalised guidance in the areas of legal, tax, including tax declaration and business process outsourcing, audit and management, and information technology consulting. It shares the same entrepreneurial DNA as its clients and can readily recognise and anticipate their specific needs. Each client has a single point of contact for all concerns. Consequently, the firm’s specialists across disciplines and borders collaborate seamlessly while applying quick decision-making processes.

“In our industry, time is money,” says Dr Thilo Ketterer, the partner responsible for China. “We are devoted to supporting our clients wherever in the world they may be, and we’re strong and agile enough to endure any challenge. Our success is ultimately based on the success of our clients.”
