RÖDL & PARTNER

Comment: A recommended firm for M&A which sets itself apart from most midsized competitors with its global presence and MDP approach. Accordingly, Rödl often lands new Mittelstand clients and advises these on activities abroad, e.g. advice to a German family business on a company acquisition in several eastern European countries. The team also advises foreign, esp. Chinese, investors, on deals in Germany. The loss of six young partners in Nuremberg, who spun off as Theopark, was a setback; another partner moved to KPMG Law. The departures left a gap in distressed M&A and VC, which Rödl has already set about closing.
Strengths: Offices in many countries. Outstanding Mittelstand ?tax practice.
Recommended: Prof. Dr. Christian Rödl (esp. tax), Michael Wiehl, Dr. Oliver Schmitt.
Practice: Small and midsized transactions in Germany and abroad. Also tax advice. Clients are mainly German owner-managed family businesses. (8 equity partners, 9 salary partners, 15 associates)
