Schulz Noack Bärwinkel

Comment: Respected firm in Hamburg. Asian connections are a particular firm feature and are nurtured by German partners in Asia. SNB saw its usual work for Asian investors in Germany, though the environment for inbound investments became more difficult. Restructuring work for listed company Beate Uhse demonstrated the corporate prowess of Huth and should raise SNB’s profile further. Competitors commented positively on the cooperation by various practices, e.g. in transactions and litigation.
Strengths: Long-standing tradition in German-Chinese legal relations. Extensive litigation experience.
Recommended: Axel Neelmeier (business with China), Corinna Rindfleisch (“quick reactions and pragmatic”, competitor; IP), Dr. Olaf Schulz-Gardyan (“good, long-running cooperation”, competitor; energy law), Martin Stangl (“extremely skilled, fair negotiator”, competitor), Dr. Mark-Alexander Huth (corporate and business with China).
Practice: Corporate, contract drafting and litigation/arbitration with reference to energy networks and prices as well as bank terms. Further specialties exist in banking (mezzanine finance, IPOs), construction, forced administrations, IT/IP (incl. data protection law). Work for Chinese companies and German companies in the Chinese market, often relating to patents. Own offices with partners and patent attorneys in Shanghai and Ho Chi Minh City. (12 partners, 10 associates, 2 of counsel)
Clients: ?? Ongoing advice to Beate Uhse on restructuring; ongoing advice in various fields to Cosco Shipping, Studio Hamburg Group, Smurfit Kappa; ongoing IT advice to logistics software company Dakosy; ongoing work for Haspa and Commerzbank in investor suits (public knowledge).
