Comment: Clients attest to this firm recommended for M&A’s good understanding of the Mittelstand. But the transaction team is chiefly active for listed companies and large media corporates, e.g. in the acquisition of raw material suppliers or as part of the newspaper market consolidation. This was a reason why the firm ramped up associate level, resulting in an equal number of partners and associates. This new team size was to the advantage of transaction partner Born, who advised on more deals.
Strengths: Public and cross-border M&A.
Recommended: Dr. Thomas Trölitzsch, Dr. Felix Born (“highly competent, brings the deal over the finish line”, competitor), Dr. Rolf Leinekugel.
Practice: Focus on advice to large (often listed) companies. Sectors include press, ?pharmaceuticals and healthcare and ?energy. (6 equity partners, 6 associates)
Clients: ?? Ledvance on asset deal regarding Narva Lichtquellen; Stuttgarter Zeitungsverlag on acquisition of Esslinger Zeitung; Itelligence on acquisition of BIT Group and Goldfish ICT; Primion Technology on transaction; Rieker Investment regarding majority stake in Krüger Dirndl.
