Comment: This recommended litigation and arbitration practice at the ?Munich-based firm stands out from the competition primarily due to its tax and accounting know-how. Kantenwein and van Bevern scored points recently with their expertise at the interface to auditing and legal advice when they represented a company founder in post-M&A arbitration proceedings following the sale of the company. The focus on energy disputes has grown considerably: the work for a German energy corporation on the efficacy of long-term power purchase agreements, which kept a team headed up by Kröck on its toes, shows once again that the firm’s clients also entrust it with extremely high-volume disputes. The fact that Kantenwein acts on a level with much larger outfits is also reflected in the associates it has once again managed to draw away from renowned major firms.
Recommended: Dr. Alexander Kröck (“highly experienced in litigation; structured and thorough”, competitor), Dr. Thomas Kantenwein (“esp. strong in business-heavy proceedings”, competitor), Marcus van Bevern (“experienced litigator”, competitor), Dr. Annett Kuhli (“clever, energetic, analytical, flexible”, competitor).
Practice: Many disputes related to finance, accounting and ?tax as a result of MDP background. Also corporate litigation (post-M&A, D&O liability), litigation arising from commercial and distribution contracts and freelancers’ professional liability. Arbitration esp. according to German Institution of Arbitration and ICC. (4 equity partners, 1 salary partner, 4 associates)
