Squire Patton Boggs

Comment: This respected firm for M&A boasts a solid portfolio of regular, strategic clients, but also PE funds. Hiring a Frankfurt IP team from Wilmer Hale at the end of 2016 soon proved fruitful for M&A: SPB advised Miele for the first time on a transaction. The ?Frankfurt team was bolstered by Dr. Sabine Pittrof from Deloitte Legal, who is set to build up deal work related to Australia. There are Chinese contacts in Berlin, but the team is too small to grow its inbound work significantly.
Recommended: Dr. Kai Mertens.
Practice: Mainly active for companies and strategic investors; many corporate real estate transactions in Berlin. (6 partners, 6 associates, 1 of counsel)
Clients: ?? Miele on acquisition of Steelco; Raymond James Financial on acquisition of Mummert & Company; Asahi Glass on acquisition of Biomeva; Edgewater Capital Partners on sale of PolyAd Services to Altana; Olin Corp. following split-off transaction with Dow Chemical.
