Comment: Much of the work of this recommended M&A practice is divided among its main offices in Frankfurt and Düsseldorf. In the latter, partner Kränzlin, who specializes in industrial clients, enjoyed more international deal work. Jakob’s Frankfurt team is reducing its reliance on the strong real estate practice: Deutsche Börse hired FPS for its acquisition of a fintech startup. The practice’s positive progress is also thanks to a young, increasingly visible partner generation in Frankfurt.
Strengths: Transactions in the real estate sector.
Recommended: Dr. Holger Jakob (“very skilled”, competitor), Dr. Georg-Peter Kränzlin, Susanne Lang.
Practice: Midsized deals with a significant share of real estate transactions (in ?Frankfurt); Düsseldorf focuses on regional industry. Clients: many Mittelstand companies, also with international aspects. (9 equity partners, 4 salary partners, 6 associates, 2 of counsel)
Clients: ?? Deutsche Börse on acquisition of minority stake in Figo; Parramatta Capital on acquisition of Car Trim Group; B. Braun Melsungen/Via Medis and Catalyst Capital on transactions; Infront B2Run on acquisition of Firmenlauf; real estate investor on transaction.
