Companies and entrepreneurs can count on a reliable legal system.
The legal framework is solid
and enforcement is effective. The judiciary is independent, and judges are highly professional.
German courts have a good record in upholding the sanctity of contracts.
The 1956 U.S.-FRG Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation affords U.S. Investors
national treatment and provides for the free movement of capital between the United States and
Germany. Germany subscribes to the OECD National Treatment Instrument and the OECD
Codes of Liberalization of Capital Movements and of Invisible Operations. In 2013, the Capital
Investment Code replaced the German Foreign Investment Act and the Foreign Trade and
Payments Act and the Foreign Trade and Payments Ordinance were amended.
