With the launch of our Berlin office in 2007, the firm expanded its operations both in Europe’s largest economy and in one of the largest bilateral economic partners of the United States.
Our Berlin office is located in the heart of the political and business district. Since the Berlin Wall came down, Berlin has not only regained its position as the political center of Germany but also has become one of the principal and fastest growing markets for the media and entertainment, biotech, life sciences, IT, and advertising industries.
Lawyers in our Berlin office focus on corporate/M&A, emerging growth and venture capital, and real estate. The team is also active in the fields of investment management; IP/IT and media; litigation and dispute resolution; and labor, employment, and workplace safety; as well as advising on regulatory matters related to public procurement and antitrust law.
Our Berlin office works closely with our Frankfurt and Munich offices to constitute a seamless German practice, advising comprehensively on national and international commercial law. The distinctive feature of our legal services is efficient transaction and project management combined with increased partner involvement. We advise international and German industrial companies, banks, and financial investors, as well as the public sector, comprehensively on commercial law.
