With around 1,100 lawyers in 16 offices worldwide, Weil ranks among the world’s leading international law firms. Since their opening in 2000 and 2004, respectively, the German offices in Frankfurt/Main and Munich have succeeded in building a first-class transaction practice, in particular in the field of private equity. The firm’s most recent high-profile transactions include advising Lone Star Funds on the sale of MBCC Group to Sika; TES in its joint venture with OGE for the development of CO2 infrastructure; e‑commerce aggregator Elevate Brands on its acquisition by SellerX; Genstar Capital/Arrowhead Engineered Products on the acquisition of Bihr NV; Apax portfolio company Dstny Group on the acquisition of easybell GmbH; TCV on its investments in Celonis, Flix, Trade Republic and Mambu GmbH; Advent on the acquisition of a 30% stake in Aareon AG.
Our German offices advise leading private equity investors on traditional, distressed and growth transactions as well as secondary buy-outs, add-ons and taking privates. In addition, our firm is retained by sponsors and portfolio companies in restructuring cases. Legal counseling services rendered also include advice on tax structuring, corporate issues, acquisition finance and merger control. As most of the transactions are cross-border and involve other jurisdictions, our German offices work closely with the global Weil network to provide tailor-made services on a seamless basis.
