DENTONS

Comment: A firm respected for real estate which is now established in Germany, partly owing to its strong international setup. This includes a Luxembourg office, which pays dividends in advice to foreign funds and in share deals, which are still numerous. The track record was also strong in traditional transactions, e.g. the sale of Cecilienpalais in Düsseldorf for KanAm and the sale of Junghof Plaza for Commerz Real. Dentons stepped up its NPL transaction activity, where close ties with ?finance are an asset, demonstrating its wider profile. In line with this strategy, individual partners are focusing on asset classes like hotels and nursing homes. The firm enjoyed a slice of the expanding Berlin market, with work in various project developments. Three partner appointments underscore the positive development.
