Advice on where to form an LLC. US citizen living in Germany

I am moving from a corporate job to that of a freelancer and looking for advice on how/where to setup an LLC. Some background info:

US citizen and will be living in Germany full time with my family
I will have clients in the US and Germany/EU. Work is in the design field, so no physical goods.
I will be the only employee, but I would like to sub-contract work to former colleagues in Asia for support in that region (I will bill for their hours and pay them directly)

Goals: Potentially lower tax liability

Hello!

Probably a GbR would be the right legal form for you, but it depends on various factors. Maybe this link will help: https://wwkn.de/en/about-german-legal-forms/german-private-partnership-gbr-german-commercial-partnership-ohg/
