Comment: A recommended Frankfurt office with a strong focus on corporate and M&A transactions. Here it gained numerous new clients, such as Takata Europe. In addition to traditional industries, companies from the insurance and finance sector are increasingly consulting the team, e.g. Dutch insurance group Aegon. A further strength is the litigation team, which recently gained some prominent clients. It often handles D&O cases and damages claims, e.g. the litigation for a Mittelstand machine manufacturer against a large accounting firm.
Strengths: International business.
