Comment: Respected corporate practice with strong roots in the east Westfalen Mittelstand and family companies. The comprehensive and highly specialized notary service stands out; it is now provided in six locations and often gives rise to follow-on work for the corporate practice. Cooperation within the international network Pangea is increasingly close. The firm dipped its toe into venture capital advice with its work for Miele Venture Capital in the course of an acquisition of shares.
Strengths: Very good ties in the eastern Westfalen region ( ?Ruhr Valley/Westfalen), renowned international connections.
Recommended: Dr. Franz Tepper, Dr. Oliver Knodel, Dr. Bernhard König.
Practice: Advice on company succession and structuring at family companies. Also smaller transactions as part of advice to mainly owner-led Mittelstand clients. (Corporate in total: 13 partners, 9 associates, 2 of counsel)
Clients: ?? Miele Venture Capital concerning investor’s acquisition of a stake; Georg Kugelmann in post-M&A arbitration; AHS Aviation on conversions; ongoing advice to Claas Group; fashion company on international JV (Taiwan and Albania).
