Firm Overview:
Hengeler Mueller is a leading international law firm specialising in high-end advice across a broad range of legal fields. The firm’s clients include major German and international entities, as well as leading private equity investors and family-owned enterprises based in Germany, Europe and around the world. Hengeler Mueller is dedicated to absolute quality and the highest standards of service, delivering the most creative and efficient solutions designed to optimise clients’ business objectives. The prerequisite: a true and independent partnership of professionals, entrepreneurial in their thinking and handling and international in their education, training and practice. Continually cultivating their in-depth knowledge and expertise in a wide spectrum of business law matters, lawyers at Hengeler Mueller establish for each mandate result-oriented and cost-effective teams – interacting in various fields of practice – to meet a client’s specific needs.

Main Areas of Practice:
Key practice areas of the firm are M&A, private equity, corporate law as well as banking and capital markets. In addition Hengeler Mueller has highly developed expertise in specialised areas of law such as competition and antitrust, compliance, crisis management and investigations, employment, insurance, IP/IT, litigation, arbitration and ADR, public law and regulatory, real estate, restructuring and insolvency, tax and white collar crime. Hengeler Mueller provides comprehensive legal advice in all major industry sectors, e.g. automotive, banking and finance institutions, chemicals, energy and the utilities sector, family-owned enterprises, healthcare and life sciences, infrastructure, transport and logistics, primary products, private equity, the real estate industry, TMT and the insurance sector.

International Work:
Hengeler Mueller advises clients worldwide and handles their cross-border matters. In recent years, the firm has operated in more than 70 different countries. Hengeler Mueller strongly believes that cross-border service of the highest quality can best be provided by independent firms, preserving their own partnerships of professionals and thus strengthening their respective brands by mutual commitment to absolute standards of service.
The firm’s co-operation with pre-eminent firms in major jurisdictions on cross-border matters is far more than a mere ‘network’ or ‘referral system’. Through integrated teams, clients have access to international legal services that are client-focused, cost-effective and result-oriented. Hengeler Mueller’s success in representing clients across borders demonstrates that integrated teams give clients what they want: seamless handling of the transaction from beginning to end and legal advice of unsurpassed quality.
The firm’s ties with leading firms throughout the world are exemplary, widely recognised as setting the standard in international legal services. For decades, Hengeler Mueller has been working intensively with ‘best friends’ Slaughter and May (UK) in addition to Bonelli Erede Pappalardo (Italy), Bredin Prat (France), Uría Menéndez (Spain), De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek (the Netherlands) and further renowned European firms. Hengeler Mueller’s long established relationships to top law firms in the US continue to be a focal point of ist international presence. In recent years, the firm has expanded its cooperation with leading law firms in China, India, Russia and other countries with rapidly growing economies.
Together with its ‘best friends’ Hengeler Mueller has an unparalleled track record in cross border transactions, and constantly strives to raise the benchmark of best practice in global legal services. In 2020, the Best Friends group acted in 220 deals worth an aggregate of more than USD 249bn.
