Comment: This firm recommended in corporate consistently maintains a regional profile, but the offices in Hanover and Braunschweig form the heart of its almost unparalleled practice in stock corporation law. This is partly thanks to its highly significant notary work, which has now become its calling card in both markets. Just how well the lawyers can translate their ties to listed corporates into instructions is demonstrated by the ongoing litigation for VW. The firm is also characterized by its deep roots among Mittelstand clients and entrepreneurial families, which is clear from its partner-heavy setup. The restructuring work for two regional construction material concerns is only one example.
