From Germany’s financial center, our Frankfurt team advises clients worldwide in the fields of banking and finance, capital markets and public takeovers. In conjunction with our Munich, Düsseldorf and Cologne offices, McDermott maintains a broadening and deepening corporate practice in Europe.

We collaborate with our own offices and work alongside closely associated international law firms to offer pragmatic and creative solutions to all of our client’s legal issues. Our Frankfurt lawyers focus on equity capital markets, equity-linked products, mergers and acquisitions, financing and corporate law, and have extensive experience in US capital market law. We represent leading international financial institutions and companies in Germany and Europe. The team also advises international clients on cross-border transactions, as well as US clients that are active in Europe.

Our Frankfurt team and individual lawyers are recognized 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 Frankfurt office are prepared to help clients wherever their business interests take them.

Prof. Dr. Clemens Just is the managing partner for the Firm’s Frankfurt office.


We combine personal passions with industry and legal prowess to deliver for our clients every day.
