SKW SCHWARZ

Comment: This firm respected for M&A stayed true to its ?media and ?IT sector specialty and for the first time advised US PE fund Accel-KKR, which focuses on investments in the software sector. This work arose via Scottish partner firm Brodies, demonstrating the strong cooperation in the global firm network and SKW’s international direction. The team mainly advises on mid-cap deals and is increasingly active in the real estate sector, incl. ongoing advice to a leading retail chain on acquiring and selling premises.
Recommended: Dr. Stephan Morsch (“superb performance: friendly, determined, no arrogance or unnecessary sharpness”, “very good value for money”, clients).
Practice: Traditional strength in the ?media and IT sector, increasingly in numerous other sectors, esp. for Mittelstand companies. (11 partners, 12 associates)
Clients: ?? Accel-KKR on acquisition of Optivo; Optegra shareholder on sale to Vistra; Kirkhill Aircraft Parts on acquisition of flight battery trader; Bosch Thermotechnik on acquisition of DAA; retail chain on acquisition and sale of various retail premises.
