Comment: A firm recommended for banking and bank regulatory law which enjoys a reputation for quality and which, thanks to regular clients like the German Savings Bank Association and Axel Springer, is permanently active in some key areas for the implementation of current regulations by financial institutes and non-banks. The lawyers have a head start on a number of competitors when it comes to fintech, as current work for (foreign) clients shows. More associates than usual went over to the client side, which may reduce capacities in the short term, but should improve the firm’s foothold in the sector in the long run.
Strengths: Banking litigation and financing, advice to fintech companies and venture capital investors.
Recommended: Dr. Thomas Lindemann, Dr. Daniel Radig, Dr. Till Brocker.
Practice: High proportion of litigation for banks and initiators, esp. for investor claims and class actions. Advice to German and foreign banks and other financial services providers on startups, licensing proceedings, compliance and corporate governance. Occasionally also capital markets. (3 partners, 5 associates)
Clients: ?? German Savings Bank Association on terms and conditions in cross-border consumer business as well as credit/debit card conditions; Axel Springer regarding payment system operated from UK; Wirecard Bank concerning Swiss online factoring platform and prepaid credit card product with online gaming element; Finnest on prospectus requirements for crowdfunding products; association concerning negative interest.
