The combination of litigation, restructuring and capital markets as well as takeover law in corporate ensures a stream of top-class instructions, such as those for the supervisory board of Deutsche Bank, Daimler, or recently for dm. Even if the M&A practice did not manage to seamlessly follow last year’s ZF Friedrichshafen deal with another of comparable size, it was nevertheless involved in complex and international instructions, incl. for the Fujian Grand Chip Investment Fund in takeover law. Strengths: Renowned antitrust practice, stock corporation and capital markets law."
