Paul Hastings

Comment: This firm recommended for M&A continued last year’s success and closed numerous deals. Engelstädter mainly advises industrial companies on acquisitions, while Wolff specializes in PE transactions. The good contacts in the firm’s Asian branches were shown in advice to Samsung on the Harman acquisition, which stemmed from the Seoul office. Referrals from the US, however, tend to be smaller and more piecemeal. A corporate partner coming from Clifford Chance last year brought additional work, incl. with a US element.
Strengths: Distressed M&A; cross-border M&A.
Recommended: Dr. Christopher Wolff, Dr. Regina Engelstädter (“masterful, strong negotiator”, client).
Practice: Broad transaction practice with significant rise in cross-border M&A and private equity. (6 partners, 6 associates)
Clients: ?? Samsung on acquisition of Harman; Dexcom on acquisition of Nintamed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland; Filtration Group on acquisition of Porous Technologies business; Fujian Grand Chip on public takeover bid for Aixtron; Keensight Capital on acquisition of Aap Biomaterials.
