Legal 500 EMEA 2018: seven lawyers and three practise areas recommended
In its 2018 edition Legal 500 Europe, Middle East and Africa, recommends three practise areas of Thouvenin Rechtsanwälte and seven lawyers with the following quotes:
Corporate, commercial and M&A (tier 3): Thouvenin Rechtsanwälte is the ‘perfect size for SME clients’, provides ‘a very high service level with feasible and practical advice’ on M&A, reorganisations, joint ventures, corporate governance and general corporate law and is ‘able to act quickly and without fuss’. Microsoft Corporation retains the group for general corporate matters. Markus Alder ‘knows the challenges of small and medium-sized enterprises’, while Arlette Pfister, Thomas Loher and Michael Bösch are also recommended.
Dispute resolution – litigation (tier 4): its litigation team consists of ‘brilliant minds’ who deliver ‘well thought-through advice in a punctual manner’. The main focus lies on banking, tax and estate litigation, as well as commercial, construction, distribution and competition disputes. In a recent highlight, the group defended a real estate developer against a deception of price claim brought by the buyer of a hospitality property. Patrick Rohn ‘is very much in control of the proceedings’; Daniel Stoll and Michael Bösch are other names to note.
TMT (tier 4): The firm’s ‘very good practice performs well in the TMT field’ and advised Microsoft Corporation on Swiss telecommunications law. ‘Responsive, knowledgeable and to-the-point’ associate Katia Favre is ‘highly appreciated by clients’.
