Comment: This Duisburg-based firm counts among the leading outfits in the Ruhr Valley. Grüter has been known for its transaction business since day one; however, it is not the firm’s renowned partners but two salary partners working alongside them in the market who have increasingly drummed up business lately. A prime example here is the advice given to a family office on the acquisition of a real estate company. In addition, the firm’s renowned four-strong notary office is ensuring advisory work, esp. in the corporate and employment practices. Alongside regional focal areas, Grüter is traditionally active in a cross-border capacity and advises clients on Anglo-American and Asian markets. The fact that the firm was able to bring on board a corporate lawyer with strong Russian connections, Eugen Löffler (from Beiten Burkhardt) as a salary partner paves the way for new potential for eastern European expansion.
