Comment: By strengthening its team last year, this recommended corporate practice was able to widen its palette and boost its profile. The arrival of partners from Freshfields and Latham & Watkins not only brought excellent expertise and clients (e.g. Wacker Chemie) in AGMs and D&O advice but also strengthened the interface with compliance. Schwarz already has a good reputation here. GD impressed several new clients in addition to advising its numerous notable core clients such as Bosch.
Recommended: Dr. Wilhelm Reinhardt, Dr. Lutz Englisch (“very sound knowledge”, competitor), Dr. Benno Schwarz (“highly intelligent, also friendly”, “expert on Russia”, competitors; esp. compliance), Dr. Markus Nauheim (esp. litigation).
