Goodwin Procter

Comment: Recommended Frankfurt office, which has enjoyed an excellent first year after the arrival of four partners from Ashurst. Numerous lucrative clients such as Cerberus, Castlelake and WCM came with the lawyers to the new outfit, as demonstrated by the transactions advice to clients. The office was also active for a group of clients from the strong US client base for the first time. The arrival of a tax partner (also from Ashurst) the previous year is a logical addition to the transaction practice. In addition to the real-estate-related work, the private equity practice started in an encouraging way. With a clear focus on mid-cap work, as well as considerable experience in NPL transactions, it was immediately active on portfolio transactions for significant PE houses such as CVC.
Strengths: Real estate transactions, private equity.
Recommended: Marc Bohne, Peter Junghänel (both real estate), Dr. Stephan Kock (financing), Lars Jessen (private equity).
Practice: ?Real estate, ?acquisition finance, ?private equity. (5 partners, 12 associates)
Clients: ?? WCM on purchase of retail portfolio, Slate Asset Management on purchase of over 70 retail properties; Gramercy Europe on sale of a logistics real estate portfolio; CVC/Linxens on purchase of the Secure ID & Transaction business from Smartrac.
