Comment: This recommended office in Frankfurt is well established in the market, thus disproving the claim made by some that Frankfurt is a market dependent on large firms. Wendelstein’s unbroken flow of deals comes through a national and international network that also handles referral clients from big firms, but it also understands how to expand its existing client base. The best examples are Deutsche Telekom Capital Partners, for which it handles corporate and larger M&A deals, and new client Merck. Large transactions in the real estate sector have increased, e.g. for Black Stone Real Estate on purchase of Austrian retail markets.
Recommended: Dr. Daniel Müller-Etienne, (“highly professional”, “fast and cooperative”, “distinguished specialist”, competitors), Philipp von Bismarck, Frank Fischer (“top quality”, competitor), Nikolaus Hofstetter (“top notch in M&A, esp. real estate deals, entrepreneurial thinker, impressive negotiator”, client; “reliable, top quality, sees things through”, “pragmatic and responsive”, competitors).
Practice: Focus on corporate/ ?M&A. Also restructuring and ?corporate. Other core areas are capital markets, real estate, litigation. Also tax/succession. (7 partners, 6 associates)
Clients: ?? Shareholders of Inverto on sale to BCG; Redknee Germany on sale to AssetX; Black Stone Real Estate on purchase of Austrian shopping centers and sale-and-lease-back transaction; Wiener Feinbäckerei Heberer on sale of branches; 7. Fondis Real Estate on purchase of logistics properties.
