Comment: This firm comes recommended for M&A and is seizing on the opportunities offered by the young Luxembourg office. This connection not only paid dividends in numerous real estate deals, but also enabled more intensive advice concerning holding and fund structures. Corporate and tax-driven transactions like those pushed by the Munich team are another focal point. The M&A practice handled a growing number of cross-border deals in both directions: it assisted US company Visual IQ in its acquisition of a German software company, and various German shareholders (IT and auto sectors) on selling their shares abroad.
Strengths: Mittelstand deals.
Recommended: Dr. Andreas Bauer, Dr. Michael Stobbe.
Practice: Cross-border transactions; active in various sectors but particularly strong in ?real estate, auto, energy and financial services. (13 equity partners, 2 salary partners, 3 counsel, plus associates)
Clients: ?? Visual IQ on acquisition of Refined Labs; SciLS shareholder on sale to Bruker; ABT Sportsline on sale of ABT Formel E to Audi; Universal Investments on acquisition of student accommodation; AviaRent fund on acquisition of nursing homes.
