Comment: Like many of its local competitors, this highly recommended firm from east Westfalen has a client base it can depend on. The firm advises Mittelstand clients and also larger companies from its head office in Bielefeld, primarily on corporate law matters as well as public law. A lot of work here stems from the outfit’s large notary office, which has grown even further to include twelve officials. Thanks to its many fee earners and resulting broad setup (incl. in employment), the firm is able to advise its clients on insolvency and restructuring. Banking is also becoming an increasingly important pillar. After the firm opened a second office specializing in the banking industry two years ago in Münster – the first being in Hamm – it has now set up an additional office dedicated to this field in Hanover. This allows the firm to provide even greater assistance to the numerous savings banks it has been advising in Niedersachsen for many years now; it has also enabled it to close the geographical gap to its previously rather outlying Potsdam office.
Strengths: Vast litigation experience. Substantial expertise in banking, large notary office.
