Comment: This recommended firm for M&A has widened its client base substantially since launching in 2012, esp. among German ?private equity houses. For long-time client Burda, the M&A team coordinated an impressive transaction in the UK comprising a portfolio of more than 75 media brands, demonstrating that it is up to the task of even complex cross-border transactions, as it did in the international Delivery Hero acquisitions. The team, which competitors describe as “pragmatic, fast and skilled”, welcomed an M&A expert from Gleiss Lutz – the Munich firm’s first counsel. The new London office headed by Gubitz is likely to be a source of even more transaction work.
Recommended: Dr. Daniel Gubitz, Georg Lindner, Dr. Ludger Schult.
