Comment: A recommended Frankfurt office, which is expanding its banking advice along with the corporate practice. Litigation has been the dominant force until now, but the team increasingly handles regulatory law. Long-term clients include big names like Commerzbank and ING-DiBa. A partner who joined from Allen & Overy last year is advising on public procurement. He scored a success for Deutsche Bahn subsidiary BVR Busverkehr Rheinland before the ECJ. The corporate practice has developed well with some new international clients.
Practice: ?Corporate, ?commercial litigation and liability, ?M&A, banking, dispute resolution. Also trademarks and unfair competition. (6 equity partners, 3 salary partners, 17 associates)
Clients: ?? BVR Busverkehr Rheinland before the ECJ concerning the awarding of public service contracts directly; German Publishers and Booksellers Association ongoing in public procurement; Bridgestone on transfer of German branch network into a JV with Pneuhage; ongoing advice on banking regulations to Commerzbank (all public knowledge).
