Comment: This recommended corporate practice develops consistently in line with transaction work, without becoming radically different – a typical trait of this firm. Luther can thus showcase its strengths beyond its traditional work, which is deeply rooted in the Mittelstand, e.g. through its proximity to the public sector, which it advises on high-end projects. The firm demonstrated its expertise in the energy sector by advising a large energy provider on restructuring its network operator. A pillar is advice to foreign clients on activities in Germany and Europe, with Asian work flourishing in both directions (e.g. Nextbike in Singapore). Luther continues to expand its notary, appointing a partner notary in Essen.
Strengths: Deep roots in the Mittelstand.
