Comment: With its strong practices in M&A, banking, infrastructure and IT law, this highly recommended Frankfurt office still has a high profile in small- and mid-cap transactions. Waldeck is expanding its international business once again, esp. inbound business with Chinese investors. In corporate, it benefits from its notary expertise, e.g. for internal corporate restructuring. The firm is also very active in litigation. In addition to advising its Mittelstand client base, Waldeck is moving ahead in the startup scene, which also fits with the firm’s strength in IT. Here it maintained its position as a specialist for outsourcing and cloud projects, e.g. for advice to Deutsche Telekom, and does esp. well in the banking sector, e.g. European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and big data.
