Eversheds Sutherland

Comment: This firm recommended for M&A is benefiting from the German lawyers’ growing sphere of activity within the global network. Deals with US and Asian elements added to the contacts of the German partners (e.g. Messe München and the Buchbinder owners) and the international connections of the firm as a whole (e.g. WestRock). Having specialized in stock corporation law from day one, the corporate team is excellently positioned for public takeovers and brought the firm a deal with a volume far exceeding the usual dimensions: Chemtura/Lanxess. With the closure of Düsseldorf firm Grooterhorst, ES widened its spectrum to include real estate.
Strengths: Public takeovers, large global network.
Development potential: The firm setting foot in the real estate sector opens up potential in M&A. To leverage this quickly and live up to its full-service claim, ES will need to strengthen related areas, esp. finance.
Recommended: Dr. Matthias Heisse, Christof Lamberts.
Practice: Broad activity in corporate and capital markets (incl. tax and financing). Increasingly international transactions. (3 equity partners, 5 salary partners, 2 counsel, 8 associates)
Clients: ?? Chemtura on takeover by Lanxess; Horizon Global on acquisition of Westfalia; Globalways on takeover by Star Capital Partners; Messe München regarding majority stake in Fenestration China; WestRock on takeover of MPS and sale of closure business.
