Pinsent Masons

Comment: The focus of this firm respected for equity capital markets lies on low-volume transactions and Mittelstand companies. With its work for S&T on the purchase of a block of Kontron shares with a volume of over €100m, however, the practice has proven that it is capable of advising on larger transactions as well. Most recently, the team hired two associates, incl. a lateral from BayernInvest.
Strengths: Ideally positioned for IPOs in Entry Standard through close contacts to small and midsized issuing houses.
Development potential: The reinforcements at the associate level and the firm’s network should enable the team to promote its international business and to win larger instructions regularly, incl. from TecDAX companies. Further potential for the relatively small practice lies in stronger cooperation with banks.
Recommended: Thomas Mayrhofer.
