Comment: This recommended corporate practice, present at all five of the firm’s German offices, gained a lateral in Berlin, Dr. Thomas Derlin from K&L Gates. The work on the Delphi restructuring and on Adler Real Estate’s change of corporate form shows that GSK is increasingly positioning itself for cross-border restructuring. Thanks to the Luxembourg office that was opened in 2016, GSK is now better placed to extend its advice to include tax-efficient funds and holdings. The firm’s extensive expertise in the real estate sector is beneficial here; the team brought this into play for various energy efficiency projects in building management.
