DEBEVOISE & PLIMPTON

Comment: The respected M&A practice of this US firm saw a clear rise in M&A deals, both from the network and generated by von Holst. He has established a client base that led to work, for example, in several deals for Helios in Africa. Fund expert Patricia Volhard came from P+P Pöllath + Partners, bolstering the practice substantially and underscoring the focus of the office – and the M&A practice – on financial institutes.
Strengths: Strong US practice.
Recommended: Dr. Thomas Schürrle, Philipp von Holst.
Practice: Mainly international M&A work (esp. with strong capital markets aspects). Sectors include financial services, insurance, PE, VC, industrial sector. Large portion of US law in Frankfurt, advice also to German companies in the US. (1 partner, 2 counsel, 3 associates)
Clients: ?? Belectric on sale of German Solar & Battery Holding to Innogy; Helios Investors on M&A transactions with Sub-Sahara portfolio companies; Dover Corp. on German law aspects in takeover of gas pump division from Tokheim.
