Opened in 2008 by an experienced group of practitioners with a longstanding history of successful cooperation, the Frankfurt office has developed premier practices that benefit from the breadth of experience of 1,000 talented colleagues in the firm's offices in North America, Europe and Asia.
Our Frankfurt attorneys represent sophisticated, high-profile clients in contentious regulatory and antitrust matters, drawing on their close links with the firm's top-tier EU Regulatory Group in Brussels. Another core strength of our office is resolving high-stakes disputes, focusing primarily on litigating and arbitrating matters that raise complex strategic, legal or factual issues and are of high importance to our clients. The group has appeared numerous times at the European Court of Justice and the Federal Supreme Courts. Advising on and investigating compliance matters is another of our focus areas in Germany and across the firm. We are proud to say that our attorneys in the Frankfurt and Berlin offices are recognized as experienced leaders in the field by clients, prosecutors and other law firms.
Embedded in the firm's traditions, the Frankfurt office maintains a strong cross-border and domestic corporate and transactional practice. Its renowned intellectual property practice focuses on complex litigation and works closely with the firm's premier US intellectual property counseling and prosecution and intellectual property litigation practices.
Our widely recommended data protection, cyber-crime, information technology and outsourcing practice services clients in a broad range of industries on issues that include cutting-edge technology, commercial contracts and emerging companies. The firm's Big Data Practice is co-headed out of the Frankfurt office and is closely integrated with other global practices.
