Debevoise & Plimpton

Comment: This small team around the Frankfurt partner Dr. Thomas Schürrle continues to be known on the market primarily for investigations, increasingly in the context of investments or funds. With the instruction from the Stada executive board, D&P confirmed its reputation as an investigation firm, but it remains rather inconspicuous in other advisory fields. One reason for this is that cross-border business is the focus of the practice. Here D&P often benefits from the strong US practice, which the former head of the SEC, Mary Jo White, most recently joined. Despite several prominent German clients, the German lawyers will struggle to regain the visibility they had in Siemens times without staff reinforcements, esp. in view of increasing competition in compliance. (1 partner, 1 counsel, 4 associates)
Clients: ?? Rolls-Royce Power Systems on worldwide investigation of the distribution of an operating company; Stada on in-house investigation in dispute between executive board and supervisory board; antitrust advice to Belectric, incl. training (with Paris office).
