In today’s globalised legal market, a thorough knowledge of Legal English is not an option, but a requirement. The number of legal transactions completed in English is constantly on the rise. Even when none of the parties are situated in English-speaking countries and the relevant governing law is German law, it is often the case that lawyers have to work with the English version of a contract and communicate with their clients, colleagues and opposing counsel in English.
