With Boris Dürr, M&A Partner at the Munich office, Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek advised CANCOM SE on the acquisition of UK-based Ocean Intelligent Communications Ltd. The company’s founders and parts of management have taken out a minority interest in the new holding company so that CANCOM will end up holding 82.1% in Ocean.
