WATSON FARLEY & WILLIAMS

Comment: A recommended M&A practice which is traditionally visible in the maritime and renewable energy sectors with major transactions. WFW is also called on frequently for deals in other sectors, but the team has been unable to raise its market visibility significantly, although the lawyers are praised for their dealmaker qualities. One client noted how they work “in a target- and solution-focused way in key moments of the negotiations”.
Strengths: Multidisciplinary advice. Much experience in the ?energy and ?private equity and venture capital sectors.
Recommended: Dr. Simon Preisenberger, Dr. Malte Jordan, Dr. Ulrich Wolf, Dr. Torsten Rosenboom, Dr. Dirk Janssen.
Practice: Globally strong practice in the renewable energies sector and in the maritime industry (also Hamburg), also real estate transactions and deals for family offices (company succession and trusts); also recommended private equity practice. MDP setup incl. ?tax. (9 partners, 19 associates)
Clients: ?? Hochland/Bergland Holding on acquisition of Franklin Foods; Zeaborn on acquisition of Rickmers; Strabag on sale of wind farm project Global Tech II; PNE Wind on sale of 80 percent share in wind farm portfolio; Commerz Real on acquisition of wind farm portfolio.
