We advise companies of any legal form and size, their directors and members of their advisory or supervisory boards, as well as founders, investors, partners and shareholders on all issues – from the day-to-day business decisions to fundamental challenges.

Especially for the acquisition of companies, businesses or shares, we offer comprehensive advice in all phases of the transaction. This begins with the first planning and structural considerations and continues seamlessly to efficient due diligence and the development and negotiation of tailor-made contracts through to their conclusion and implementation. We have special expertise in restructuring measures before and after such transactions. We often advise managers in management buy-outs.

In addition, we have broad experience in corporate disputes, including, for example, often emotional disputes in family-owned businesses or post-merger disputes.

In particular in the field of M&A, our practice group has regularly been recommended by renowned legal magazines such as Juve (Handbook German Commercial Law Firms, editions 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017), Legal500 Germany (Mid-sized Domestic Deals, under €500m, 2015), FOCUS Special „Top Commercial Law Firms“ (M&A 2013, Corporate Law 2016, 2017, and 2018), Acquisition International (M&A Award 2013), Kanzleien in Deutschland (Top Firm 2014), and IFLR1000 (M&A Ranking Germany 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019).
