BRL Boege Rohde Luebbehuesen

Comment: This firm highly recommended in Hamburg is developing consistently and systematically: in its dynamic growth, BRL always gears itself towards the needs of its chiefly Mittelstand clients, esp. family businesses, for all-round advice. The corporate practice had lots to do and thus hired several associates, incl. for the rising amount of litigation. BRL cleverly covers interface fields: Denkhaus’ busy insolvency practice frequently works with M&A, so Pöllath counsel Katharina Gerdes was brought in for distressed M&A as salary partner. In addition, the M&A practice was bolstered in October 2017 when a team around Ilja Schneider joined the Hamburg office from EY Law. The real estate practice also made strides, underscored by an internal salary partner appointment, and advises such notable clients as Edeka and Unibail Rodamco, where cooperation with the Berlin office and tax practice is called for. BRL is slowly adapting its internal structures to the immense personnel and regional growth of recent years and is devoting more attention to management issues.
