Dentons

Comment: This recommended M&A practice clearly benefited from last year’s launch in Munich, which opened the door to new client segments. The practice is well on the way to accounting for a third of Dentons’ German turnover. The team is also getting more work than ever from the expanding network. Billion-euro deals like advice to the China National Environmental Protection Group on a planned major transaction in Germany show that the strategy is working. But unlike some international competitors, Dentons does not depend on referrals, instead nurturing local work, where it traditionally enjoys a good name for restructuring and healthcare sector deals.
Strengths: Broad international network, young partnership.
