Legal services; registration for temporary provision by EU citizens

Before providing temporary and occasional legal services in Germany for the first time, you must register with the registration authority.


All service providers (natural and legal persons as well as companies without legal personality) who are legally established in another member state of the European Union, in another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area or in Switzerland to exercise a profession eligible for registration (debt collection service provider, pension consultant and legal expert in a foreign law) or a comparable profession may exercise this profession temporarily and occasionally with the same powers as a person registered here in Germany (temporary legal services).


Before providing temporary legal services in Germany for the first time, you only need to register with a registration authority. You must repeat the registration annually if you wish to provide temporary legal services in Germany again after one year.

If the profession or training is regulated in your country of origin, you may exercise the activity in Germany as soon as you are legally established in your country of origin.

If neither the profession nor the training for this profession is regulated in your country of origin, you may only exercise the activity in Germany on a temporary basis if you have practiced the profession in your country of origin for at least one year during the previous ten years and the registration has been completed.
