Comment: This highly recommended corporate practice maintains very good contacts to family offices (e.g. the Reimann family) that require advice on corporate governance. The team also handled cross-border mergers, where Gesell was often at the forefront: he advised one of the world’s biggest pharma companies on merging the German-Austrian subsidiaries. O&P increasingly advises listed companies; an interdisciplinary team consisting of corporate and tax lawyers advised the pump manufacturer KSB on a change of corporate form.
