This region’s two major cities are Dresden and Leipzig; the latter has long been the financial and economic center, whereas the former is seen more as a cultural and administrative hub. Sachsen firms are generally broad-based and advise on areas such as employment, corporate and litigation, but considerable growth among companies has led to increasing demand for specialist fields, such as IP and energy. More recently a scene for startup companies has begun to flourish.

Significant developments:

  • Firms hoping to capitalize on the startup scene expand their existing work in transactions and financing.
  • Despite being somewhat overshadowed by the Leipzig powerhouse, Chemnitz’s industrial landscape is now on the cutting edge of technology and firms are opening offices here once more, though these still struggle to find well-qualified lawyers and tax advisors.
