Comment: This recommended firm is known in the Frankfurt market for its construction and real estate practice, which is distinguished by its good contacts to companies and public bodies. Transaction work largely revolves around real estate deals, e.g. for long-term client Catalyst Capital, but also for various credit institutions. The notary office took a hit when a counsel left for GSK Stockmann. The firm also increasingly advises on M&A without real estate aspects. One example is its advice to the German stock exchange on regulatory issues around the amended Payment Service Directive, PSD2. The IT practice was also involved in data protection issues here. The practice is developing well and recently gained an of counsel from Microsoft.
