SHEARMAN & STERLING

Comment: The hallmark of this recommended M&A practice is cross-border deal advice to large clients. S&S works closely with the international offices, esp. New York, e.g. advising Albemarle on the Chemetall sale to BASF. But the practice is not losing sight of local work: it advised regular client Allianz and Friedhelm Loh Group. S&S is often consulted by German clients on matters related to the US.
Strengths: Integrated finance expertise.
Recommended: Dr. Alfred Kossmann, Dr. Thomas König.
Practice: Top-level transaction work with a strong industrial focus, mainly international. (3 partners, 1 counsel, 7 associates, 1 of counsel)
Clients: ?? Allianz on sale of majority stake in Oldenburgische Landesbank; Albemarle on sale of Chemetall; BofA, Credit Suisse as financial advisors to Bayer in connection with Monsanto takeover; Friedhelm Loh Group on increasing investment in Klöckner; Emeram regarding majority stake in Frostkrone.
