What the team is known for

With offices across five major cities in Germany, DLA Piper operates a full-service model which represents a broad client base made up of mid-market entities, multinationals and DAX 30 companies. Forming an important part of the firm's excellent global network, its German base attracts considerable inbound and outbound activity, and international mandates are commonplace within the team's caseload.

In M&A transactions, the team has developed an excellent reputation acting for household names on mid-cap cross-border deals, particularly those involving Asian jurisdictions. The group is routinely engaged by leading German corporations, as well as blue-chip international companies. The firm also demonstrates a strong sector focus, boasting solid expertise internationally in areas such as energy, insurance, real estate and TMT.

The firm also offers clients a comprehensive suite of contentious capabilities. The team is accustomed to handling both cross-border litigation and international arbitration proceedings. Insolvency litigation and cross-border disputes arising out of insurance claims, especially D&O policies, are particular strengths of the team.


"DLA Piper not only offers us everything we need and more in the capital markets and finance space, including US law advice, but also the benefits of a truly global law firm with offices spread across the globe, which for a global organisation like ours is a true advantage," says a client.
