LACHNER WESTPHALEN SPAMER

Comment: This recommended office in Frankfurt focuses on advice to Mittelstand companies and financial institutions. However, the team also advises big clients, e.g. a French company on the acquisition of an industrial group. The firm provides advice on traditional banking regulatory law, e.g. representing clients before the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority, and advising financial and strategic investors. The traditional areas M&A/corporate, banking regulatory, antitrust and employment are expanding to include tax and tax supervisory law. Expansion began last year when a new partner arrived, but still has some way to go.
Strengths: Banking regulatory/investment law, advice to Mittelstand and international companies.
Recommended: Dr. Jochen Eichhorn (banking).
Practice: M&A for Mittelstand clients, ongoing corporate and restructuring advice, banking regulatory/capital markets, advice to venture capital funds/investors, private equity. Also employment and antitrust. (7 partners, 2 counsel, 4 associates)
Clients: ?? WX Smith on employment law on entering the German market; co-investor on purchase of Köhler transfer; Société Générale ongoing and on employment law; French company on purchase of an industrial group; German bank on regulatory law.
