Diversity & Inclusion
Skadden’s German practice has a particular focus on M&A, private equity, capital markets, banking and restructuring transactions as well as on high-end corporate governance, compliance and general corporate matters. We also have significant experience in dispute resolution, antitrust, tax and employment law.
Our lawyers, who counsel on both U.S. and German law, regularly advise multinationals, German-listed companies, German mid-cap companies, institutional investors, private equity firms, insurance companies and financial institutions.
Skadden has one of the leading integrated U.S. and European practices with dedicated U.S. and local law experience in key European jurisdictions. Our European practice extends to six offices (Brussels, Frankfurt, London, Moscow, Munich, Paris) in all major financial centres, operating as a seamless group without jurisdictional boundaries and delivering high-quality transactional legal services across all practice groups.
Our partners in Germany consistently are ranked highly in all major legal publications, such as Chambers Europe, The Legal 500 EMEA and JUVE, and we were named “Law Firm of the Year: Frankfurt” by JUVE in October 2013. The Financial Times awarded Skadden the highest score in the area of “Legal Expertise” in its 2013 European “Innovative Lawyers” report.
