Our firm’s third German office is based in Munich, the Bavarian capital. One of the most commercially influential centers in Europe, Munich is second only to Frankfurt as a German financial hub. Munich has developed into a pivotal center for industry resulting from its growing reputation in the high-tech sector.

Focal points of our Munich office are the Asset Management and Investment Funds and Intellectual Property (IP) Procurement and Portfolio Management practices. Our team also has extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions transactions, both within the industrial market and in private equity. An additional focus of our work is on corporate law for German and international corporations.
Our IP Litigation and IP Procurement and Portfolio Management practices also play important roles in light of the implementation of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) Agreement to enforce European patents across Europe.

Our Munich office works closely with the Berlin and Frankfurt offices to constitute a seamless German practice, providing comprehensive advice on national and international commercial law. Efficient transaction and project management, combined with increased partner involvement, are distinctive features of our legal services. We advise international and German industrial companies, banks, and financial investors, as well as the public sector, on commercial law.
