LATHAM & WATKINS

Comment: This highly recommended practice for equity capital markets has taken a great step forward: with Seiler (from Allen & Overy), it won a nationally recognized expert in IPOs and secondary offerings, together with three associates. Seiler brought close contacts to investment banks on the German market, as well as to diverse DAX companies, thus rounding out the positioning of the practice. In the future, dynamic development in the ECM market will be of central importance in keeping the larger team busy. Here the practice will be aided by its pronounced US capital markets experience, which it regularly demonstrates with its advice to European issuers on IPOs in the US, such as in the Trivago IPO on the Nasdaq.
