Comment: This respected M&A practice landed some international clients, incl. British joint stock company CBPE and Japanese-Canadian technology corporate Rakuten Kobo. It is noteworthy how the firm is now called on very frequently for tax structuring and financing aspects within deal activity. RS is already a step ahead of other firms of a similar size with this integrated advice. Advice on the sale of Schiller-Fleisch to Hannover Finanz demonstrated how RS brings its PE experience into play when advising Mittelstand companies looking to sell.
