Comment: This recommended office in Frankfurt has expanded its business in IT and IP and gained visibility through well-known clients. Good examples are its work for Commerzbank on the implementation of the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the management of brand portfolios for Webasto, Margarete Steiff and VW Financial Services. The firm lost Dr. Philipp Heigl, an experienced IT/IP partner, to DVAG, but he remains of counsel. Although the Munich office dominates the corporate practice, the Frankfurt team has positioned itself with some international clients, e.g. advice to a US manufacturer of airplane components.
