Kirkland & Ellis

Comment: One year following the arrival of former Hengeler partner Herfs, this recommended corporate practice has forged a new path. He demonstrated his considerable experience in takeover law (as seen in his work for Bain in the Stada deal). The dual-track preparation for IVG, which resulted in a sale, underlined the broad capital markets know-how. Given the focus on transactional work, it will be interesting to observe whether K&E can afford to maintain its advice to executive and supervisory boards, which flows as a result of Herfs’ various contacts.
Recommended: Dr. Achim Herfs (“very good lawyer”, client).
Practice: Focus on advice to listed companies, incl. D&O liability, capital markets. Transaction-related corporate advice, e.g. takeover law ( ?M&A). Strong ?insolvency practice. Now also capital markets. (5 partners, 6 associates)
Clients: ?? Bain/Cinven on takeover of Stada; IVG on dual-track proceedings for sale; Creat on public takeover of Biotest.
