Comment: Recommended in banking and bank regulatory law, this practice shifted its focus towards MiFID II/MiFIR and derivatives regulation. Clients now include the German Derivatives Association, while various German and international banks are advised on EMIR. Litigation took a back seat when work for NRW.Bank and L-Bank regarding Heta debt issues and debentures came to an end. The fact that Alexander Behrens went to A&O after two years and Dr. Jochen Seitz and Peter Maier moved to Hogan Lovells means the team needs to regroup.
Strengths: Experience in market infrastructure/derivatives clearing, securities regulatory law.
Practice: Subspecialty in securities regulatory law; structuring of (international) transactions, outsourcing. Also institution startups, liquidation, compliance ( ?corporate). Some litigation. (1 partner, 1 counsel, 5 associates)
