Legal services; registration in case of 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 for the practice of a profession eligible for registration (debt collection service provider, pension consultant and legal expert in a foreign law) or a comparable profession in another member state of the European Union, in another contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area or in Switzerland may temporarily and occasionally practice this profession 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 the training is regulated in your country of origin, after registration you may already exercise the activity in Germany from the time of legal establishment in your country of origin.
If neither the profession nor the training for that profession is regulated in your country of origin, you may only exercise the activity in Germany on a temporary basis if you have exercised the profession in your country of origin for at least one year during the previous ten years and registration has taken place.
Notification of temporary activity
Proof of lawful pursuit of the profession in the Member State of establishment and, where appropriate, evidence of professional experience.
