In partnership with our Cologne office, our Düsseldorf office is a key component in the Firm’s European growth strategy. The city’s global business community, industrial profile and significance as a center for international mergers and acquisitions and for patent litigation align firmly with our practice strengths.

Our lawyers provide full-range, premier legal guidance paired with an in-depth understanding of national, regional and global economic issues. Collaborating with other offices and working alongside closely associated international law firms, we offer pragmatic and creative solutions to a broad range of legal issues.

We advise clients across a broad array of legal issues, including capital markets, corporate and commercial law, corporate real estate, labor and employment, finance and banking, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and renewable energy. Our professionals also provide legal representation in litigation and dispute resolution matters. We serve private clients, family offices, institutional investors and private equity funds, and banks, as well as DAX 40, Fortune 500 and FTSE 2050 companies.

Our Düsseldorf team and individual lawyers are recognized consistently for the quality, consistency and creativity of our legal counsel by publications such as Chambers Global, JUVE Handbook, The Legal 500 and Euromoney Legal Group. As part of a global, full-service law firm, the lawyers of our Düsseldorf office are prepared to help clients wherever their business interests take them.
