HAVER & MAILÄNDER

Comment: The appointment of Dr. Hans-Georg Kauffeld to equity partner put this ?Stuttgart firm’s recommended M&A practice on a more solid footing. The team also brought in an experienced tax associate from Dentons for reinforcement. It is noteworthy how the younger partners are given enough scope to acquire new clients and to take on the lead role for these directly. If H&M just bolsters its associate level for the long term, there will be very little standing in the way of further progress.
Recommended: Dr. Peter Mailänder (“quick, solution-oriented, pragmatic”, competitor).
Practice: Advice to primarily Mittelstand clients on acquisitions and sales, incl. internationally in cooperation with long-time partner firms. Transaction advice to family businesses in connection with shareholder restructuring. (5 equity partners, 2 salary partners, 2 associates)
Clients: ?? BWK on sale of share in media group Dr. Haas; P3 Group on acquisition of Appsrise Group and regarding employee stock option plan; archiving specialist on buyback of minority stake; shareholder of protective clothing manufacturer on sale of 50 percent share.
