DLA Piper

Comment: This firm recommended for company succession and trusts landed additional HNWI clients (e.g. from Ukraine and China) seeking a way into Germany due to uncertain investment conditions or due to Brexit, largely thanks to the outstanding network of practice head Krause. Alongside the tried-and-tested interfaces with ?tax and ?corporate/ ?M&A, the practice diversified: by welcoming a four-strong team around Lars Reubekeul focusing on real estate (from King & Wood Mallesons), DLA can now cover the demand for advice on real estate investments, as Reubekeul – unlike the former practice group head – counts family offices among his clients.
Strengths: International investments.
Recommended: Dr. Nils Krause.
Practice: All-round advice to German and international HNWIs, UHNWIs and family businesses on succession planning (advice on wills, trust structures) and wealth structuring (international investments), as well as (esp. in Hamburg) trusts (charity law, US foundations) on the interface with tax and ?corporate (shareholder disputes). Notary office in Berlin. (6 partners, 3 counsel, 6 associates, 3 of counsel)
Clients: ?? Zabel family on sale of Zabel Property; ongoing advice to FSC International/FSC Global, Claussen Simon Trust, Christoffel Blindenmission, Friedrich Naumann Trust (appeal).
