Our corporate lawyers are experienced in representing domestic and foreign companies in complex and often transnational transactions, and in their financing. With approximately 1,000 lawyers and 12 locations in the United States, Europe and Asia, we are able to quickly bring together well-suited teams and draw upon lawyers in other legal disciplines such as cartel law, public commercial law, labor law and industrial property rights.
Our German team focuses on:
Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) — In the past several years we have designed and carried out a multitude of company acquisitions and sales involving national and globally operating target companies. We regularly represent our clients in tender procedures and guide them through the legal planning necessary for the financing for their acquisition. Our clients are primarily leading companies from regulated industries such as energy and aviation, or from the processing, tourism or technology industries.
Venture Capital and Private Equity — Our services include designing startup financing and further financing rounds and advising in the acquisition of participants both on and off the stock market, including the associated financing structures. In addition, we advise a multitude of VC portfolio companies.
Company and Capital Market Law — Alongside the transactions practice, we provide comprehensive services concerning company and capital market law, and advise clients on the private and public commercial legal issues related to designing complex agreement structures. We provide counsel when companies are founded, for capital measures, company mergers, cooperation and joint ventures, IPOs, and in transformations and restructurings.
Notary's Office— Our reputed Berlin notary's office regularly advises on company and real estate transactions and on restructurings under corporate law, and acts as recorders of shareholders' meetings.
