Comment: This firm recommended for M&A focuses on mid-cap deals and enjoys a strong name among clients, who increasingly stem from the corporate segment. König managed to rekindle the somewhat cooled-down KKR connection: alongside Hengeler, the ?Düsseldorf team provided legal due diligence in a billion-euro public transaction. OK widened its access to the energy and public utilities sector, e.g. thanks to new client Steag New Energies. This is largely due to a professionalization of internal cooperation.
Strengths: Often praised by clients as a lower-cost alternative to large firms.
Recommended: Dr. Robert Orth, Dr. Kai-Michael König, Boris Körner.
Practice: Focus on ?corporate as well as German and international contracts. Clients: Mittelstand companies, German and international corporates, also financial investors. (5 equity partners, 3 salary partners, 4 associates)
Clients: ?? Frauenthal on acquisition of Mahle; legal due diligence for KKR in connection with public takeover bid for GfK; Outokumpu on acquisition of Hernandez Edelstahl; Steag New Energies concerning partial municipalization; Abbelen on sale.
