Comment: This recommended corporate practice has three main planks in its practice: the work of Wilhelm in restructuring, the ongoing advice to its worldwide industrial client base (in particular a large US mid-western share) and finally the stock corporation practice around Frankfurt partner Binder. The latter has been given a boost by the cooperation with the strengthened finance team, allowing it to work on the interface with capital markets. Riehmer in particular has a strong record in takeover law, but MB’s participation in such deals is rare. The arrival of Lemor last year has transformed the corporate notary practice in Frankfurt, which was previously focused on. It has the potential to raise MB’s profile in the field.
Strengths: Global setup, strong in Asia. Strong global practice for financial service providers. Strong focus on the Mittelstand in Düsseldorf, esp. in ?insolvency and restructuring.
Recommended: Dr. Ulrike Binder, Friedrich Merz, Dr. Klaus Riehmer (“very quick response times”, client), Dr. Marco Wilhelm, Dr. Julian Lemor (also for notary work), Dr. Joachim Modlich (“outstandingly good lawyer, good understanding of the clients’ commercial considerations”, client).
Practice: Numerous focuses, incl. chemistry, pharma, automobiles, real estate, hotels, media/entertainment. International practice characterized by an industrial client base. Also ?M&A. (Corporate: 10 partners, 4 counsel, plus associates)
Clients: ?? Moody’s on JV with Euler Hermes Rating. Ongoing advice to Goodyear, Avedon Capital, Azkoyen, Benteler.
