Our internationally operating clients appreciate our firm as a ‘one-stop shop’: With us, they have a single point of contact for business transactions of any kind, notably between Germany and the US.

By establishing our branch office in Atlanta in 2010, we again expanded our already excellent expertise in International Tax Law. In January 2014 our branch office relocated to San Francisco.

Thanks to our permanent local presence in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, Rüter & Partner — the only German tax consultancy on the West Coast — has established an extensive, first-rate network benefitting our clients far beyond classic tax consulting services. This is crucially important, particularly to German clients wishing to expand their business activities to the USA.

We have decades of experience consulting with subsidiaries of multinational corporations, the international hotel and restaurant industry, closed-end real estate funds with complex international shareholding structures, transnational family offices, and high-net-worth individuals.

Ever since it was first established by Peter Rüter in 1983, the Munich office has been located at Elisenhof, directly next to the Munich central train station (‘Hauptbahnhof’). For both clients and staff, this makes our office easy to reach by all means of public transportation. And if driving, a parking garage is in our office building.
