Comment: This US firm has a very small, respected M&A team which is mostly active when deals feature regulatory law components, e.g. advice to Coop on its acquisition by Rewe. Though WH has strong DAX contacts, these are reflected more in compliance and corporate governance advice. Besides German clients, US companies seek advice from WH, though deal work no longer plays such a central role in the overall strategy. The firm is focusing more on its regulatory and litigation expertise internationally, which it is esp. well known for in the US. The M&A team shrank further with Alexander Kollmorgen’s move to K&L Gates.
