King & Wood Malle­sons based in Frankfurt/Main is a law firm focu­sed on tran­sac­tions. Our multi­di­sci­pli­nary, inte­gra­ted approach and the seam­less inte­gra­tion into the King & Wood Malle­sons network, one of the largest inter­na­tio­nal law firms with more than 3,000 lawy­ers in 31 loca­ti­ons, allow us to advise medium-sized clients, finan­cial inves­tors or inter­na­tio­nal groups in cross-border as well as dome­stic tran­sac­tions and finan­cings. Private equity tran­sac­tions are a core area of our prac­tice. Our clients bene­fit from our many years of exten­sive legal and tax expe­ri­ence in this area. In addi­tion to our wide-ranging advice on all rele­vant legal issues, our clients parti­cu­larly value our in-depth know­ledge of current market deve­lo­p­ments, the key play­ers and our under­stan­ding of the econo­mic envi­ron­ment and the objec­ti­ves of a transaction.


We advise our clients – natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal private equity firms, compa­nies and entre­pre­neurs, mana­gers and banks – on all legal issues rela­ted to M&A, manage­ment buyouts, manage­ment parti­ci­pa­tion programs and other corpo­rate finance tran­sac­tions, inclu­ding the rele­vant tax, anti­trust, employ­ment and capi­tal markets as well as the finan­cing aspects.
