Comment: Once again, this respected M&A practice proved a driving force for the whole firm: long-time client for acquisitions and IP law, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen, has now hired Rittershaus in other areas. The broad China desk plays a similar referrer role and is closely interwoven with the M&A practice: it provided numerous inbound deals, as well as post-M&A work, e.g. for Zhongding Group in ?corporate. The M&A team increasingly uses its intercultural competence to assist German businesspeople in sales negotiations with Asian investors. The firm can create many synergies for its Mittelstand clients thanks to the ?company succession and trusts practice.
Strengths: Vast experience in the life sciences sector.
Recommended: Prof. Dr. Christof Hettich, Verena Eisenlohr.
Practice: Broad mix of small and midsized transactions, both for corporates and Mittelstand clients. Cross-border activity. Increasingly VC work. Large China desk. (12 partners, 4 associates)
Clients: ?? Zhongding Group on acquisition of Tristone Flowtech Group and AMK Group; SRH on acquisition of EBS University; GTI Media on sale of Squeaker.net; Merz on sale of Senator Group to Perusa; Dr. Haas Media Group on share buyback.
