What the team is known for

Widely regarded as an international powerhouse, Kirkland & Ellis's German team is highly reputed for its transactional prowess and ability to advise on mid and large-cap cross-border deals. Based in Munich, the team regularly works in tandem with other Kirkland & Ellis offices, maintaining strong links to the firm's excellent practices in New York and London. Practitioners in Germany are well equipped to advise on an international scale and have recently been particularly active handling matters involving China for a range of clients.

From Germany, the firm's core cross-border strength lies in areas such as private equity, M&A and restructuring. The team's private equity and M&A specialists are routinely engaged on substantial multi-jurisdictional transactions, particularly those involving the UK, the USA and Europe, and often work alongside Kirkland & Ellis colleagues situated throughout the firm's network.


Discussing a project in which the firm coordinated a number of international stakeholders, a client reports: "It was excellent work; in particular, I appreciate their timing and process coordination, which was essential."
