Serving European lawyers; information on temporary practice of the profession

A European lawyer may temporarily and occasionally practice law in Germany under the professional title of his country of origin.



A prerequisite for the temporary exercise of the profession in Germany is the use of the professional title that may be used according to the law of the country of origin. Anyone who is subsequently entitled to use the professional title "Rechtsanwalt" (such as in Austria) must also indicate the professional organization to which he belongs in the country of origin (e.g. Vienna Bar Association).

The entitlement to practice the profession of a lawyer in the country of origin must be proven upon request to the competent bar association, the court or the authority before which the European lawyer providing services appears.
