Comment: This respected M&A practice is known for frequent advice on small to midsized transactions for Mittelstand companies and a number of corporate subsidiaries. The Braunschweig office played a prominent role, displaying its transaction prowess in work for Mast-Jägermeister. Advice to Bridgestone, which transferred its German network of branches to a JV, shows the Frankfurt office’s strong international ties. Here, Haas coordinated a deal via the Globallaw network. Some of the lawyers with transaction experience are in demand as notaries, which limits the firm’s ability to participate in the M&A boom. Recruiting Dr. Christian Nordholtz, who boasts deal experience and came from Clifford Chance in Frankfurt, was thus a good move.
Strengths: Strong reputation in ?corporate. Teams in Hanover and Frankfurt are experienced in transactions.
Recommended: Dr. Florian Hartl, Dr. Holger Haas.
Practice: Active for a number of large companies (esp. in ?Niedersachsen and ?Frankfurt, also expertise in cross-border M&A). Strong core of Mittelstand companies in north Germany. (7 partners, 1 associate)
