Comment: This practice ranks among the leading addresses for equity capital markets. Year after year the firm demonstrates this with its work on top-class transactions, for which predominantly companies, but also banks, rely on the team’s competence. Here it effortlessly masters the full array of capital-markets-related advice, incl. cooperation with bordering practice groups, esp. ?corporate and ?M&A. The best examples of this are its work for Metro on the spinoff and public listing of Metro Wholesale & Food Specialist and the preparation of the dual-track IPO of BSN Medical. Only Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Sullivan & Cromwell can point to such a constant and distinguished flow of transactions. The ECM practice also has a good setup, with two younger partners alongside Ernst and Groß. Competitors and clients alike now sing Rang’s praises.
