Wirtschaftswoche has once again recognized Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek as a “Top Law Firm 2018” in the field of Mergers & Acquisitions. In 2016, the Wirtschaftswoche jury had already selected the experts from the Mergers & Acquisitions department as being some of the best.
“Wirtschaftswoche’s repeated awards validate our work. Working in solution-oriented manner and close communication with clients are our top priority – we want to continue to offer our clients high added value through our advice in the future,” said Dr. Stefan Duhnkrack, head of the Corporate Law/M&A practice group.
In addition to its daily business of advising in corporate law (in particular relating to transformations, restructuring, and in capital market law), the Corporate Law/M&A practice group advises predominantly in the classic fields of private M&A and public M&A. It also has significant core expertise in advising on private equity, real estate transactions, corporate litigation, and arbitration. In terms of sectors, the practice group focuses on advising medium-sized and large companies in industry (in particular, automotive, mechanical engineering, energy), services (mainly health care, IT, tourism, and transport), and retail (retail chains, international trade). In this connection, high-class tax and financing advice is also provided.
Handelsblatt Research Institute surveyed over 2,700 M&A legal experts from 110 law firms to compile the Wirtschaftswoche top law firm ranking 2018. 287 lawyers participated, naming the most renowned lawyers and law firms. The resulting list was judged by a five-member jury.
