Comment: This highly recommended practice for equity capital markets has recently made gains in visibility, winning a considerable number of transactions. In its advice to issuers on the IPOs of Shop Apotheke, Va-Q-Tec and Vapiano, it also proved that, alongside its outstanding banking contacts, it can regularly win over companies as well. In addition, HL once again highlighted its expertise in stock dividends with its advice to Grenke. Furthermore, practice head Schlitt has formed a well-functioning team with a counsel, and the practice has grown markedly at the associate level.
Development potential: The gratifying deal flow provides a correspondingly high utilization rate. HL has taken a step in the right direction by expanding the team.
