Comment: A highly recommended firm for white collar crime which caused a buzz in the Sarasin dividend stripping (“cum-ex”) investigation of Cologne public prosecution department. Name partner Dierlamm, working with the firm Park, defended one of the main defendants and played a major role in ensuring cooperation with the authorities. The firm was also seen in various other high-profile proceedings, e.g. Arcandor and Schlecker. In the latter, good contacts at accounting company EY resulted in two instructions as accountant defender. It is even more relevant, however, how the firm set the course for the younger generation to advance by appointing a partner. But there is still some way to go: Dierlamm still dominates the market’s perception.
Strengths: High profile, also among civil law firms.
Recommended: Prof. Dr. Alfred Dierlamm (“I am very grateful to him”, client), Eva Racky.
Practice: Focus on fraud and accounting offenses, corruption, environmental criminal issues and advice, tax criminal law and unfair competition offenses. Clients include large and Mittelstand companies from various sectors and their management as well as accounting firms. (4 partners, 5 associates)
Clients: ?? Heckler & Koch on Cogeneration Act; Daimler executive regarding emissions affair; advisor as defendant in Sarasin proceedings; defendant in Maple Bank proceedings; litigation for defendants in various dividend stripping (“cum-ex”) proceedings.
