I specialise in law and finance. While there are a great many (badly paid) translators in the German market, there are very few who are able to translate difficult legal or financial texts competently and even fewer who are able to do difficult texts which combine legal and financial content.
Many of these texts are written by lawyers, twisted sadists with some sort of grammar-trauma who get off on writing labyrinthine page-long sentences without any commas.
Unless you've studied law and read at least a few hundred thousand pages of English content over the course of your life, you won't be able to translate this kind of BS.

Just curious, when did you learn to speak/write English (IIRC you are a native speaking German)? Your English writing is better than most native American English speakers.
