Comment: A firm recommended in Frankfurt, best known for its antitrust practice. One prominent case was the litigation for Paydirekt before the Federal Cartell Office (FCO) regarding a mobile payment procedure. Clients often consult the firm on antitrust damages and merger controls. A new of counsel boasts good contacts to the European Commission. One example here is the litigation for Hansen & Rosenthal before the ECJ in an antitrust damages case over price agreements for paraffin wax. Another mainstay is employment advice, esp. to its many long-term clients. The corporate practice is less prominent and increasingly focuses on transactions with French elements. Dr. Jan Ludwig’s departure for BRP Renaud & Partner set back the expansion of the IT practice. The practice did gain a young IT lawyer from Dr. Dr. Lindemann Dr. Rist & Partner.
Strengths: Good contacts to automotive suppliers, energy providers and the construction materials sector.
Recommended: Dr. Josef Schulte, Dr. Christoph Peter, Christoph Just (“experienced and very reliable”, competitor; public law), Dr. Anne-Marie Peter, Petra Ostmann (employment).
Practice: Clear focus and all-round advice on ?antitrust, corporate and employment. Also media, IT, trademarks, M&A, energy law (litigation for municipal providers) and public law (public procurement, pharmaceuticals licensing). (11 partners, 8 associates, 1 of counsel)
Clients: ?? SSL in proceedings against merger of Airbus and Arianespace; Hansen & Rosenthal on damages claims (ECJ); antitrust and regulatory advice to Paydirekt on setting up an online payment service; HNA on merger control regarding purchase of a share in Hilton Group (FCO); energy provider Mittelrhein on merger control registration regarding purchase of shares in a wind farm.
