K&L GATES

Comment: This recommended office in Frankfurt is undergoing changes: last summer the three corporate partners Andreas Füchsel, Dr. Mathias Schulze Steinen and Claudius Paul left the firm for DLA Piper – a hard blow, esp. for the private equity practice, of which Füchsel had been a driving force: this competence is now completely lacking at the Frankfurt office. The office does have a team for corporate advice in the broader sense, as offered by Schulze Steinen and Paul. It continues to advise on business with China and is advising SafBon on a purchase in Germany. There are good connections to the Paris office, for which Banke is well known and with which he has handled various transactions. In tax law, the practice used its solid international network to engage more intensively in advice to high-net-worth individuals and family offices.
Recommended: Klaus Banke, Rainer Schmitt, Karsten Seidel.
