Comment: A firm respected for banking and bank regulatory law which relies on solid contacts among associations in the public and cooperative bank sector. The litigation practice also led to much movement on the client list. The team welcomed Eric Romba as partner. He continues to hold the position of Managing Director of the Federal Association of Asset and Investment Funds, which adds to the firm’s network of association contacts. MIFID II and PSD II also keep the firm busy. Work involving the Sparkassen Innovation Hub demonstrates the interface between the “old” banking world and the fintech sector. The firm should use the innovative Berlin environment to enhance its expertise in this area and drive forward synergies between bank regulatory law, IT/IP, the law on terms and conditions and data protection law.
Strengths: Pronounced litigation practice ( ?commercial litigation and liability).
Recommended: Dr. Lars Röh, (“regular work, always good and pleasant”, client).

Advice on the German Banking Act, Securities Trading Act and issues related to custodian banks and bank regulatory law. Increasingly fintech. High proportion of capital markets clients, esp. issuing houses and fund initiators. Extensive litigation experience in defense against investor lawsuits. (2 partners, 4 associates)
