More than a decade ago, the Frankfurt office started out as a real estate capital markets practice, serving a core clientele of German and international funds, asset managers and institutional investors. While the strong focus on the real estate and fund industry remains, the Frankfurt office is also home to a specialized German and international arbitration practice and a dedicated life sciences practice.
Closely integrated into our world-leading international arbitration group, the Frankfurt team is advising clients in what will be some of the largest investment arbitration proceedings in the energy sector in Europe in the coming years.
The Frankfurt team is also an active player in the life sciences and food and beverage arenas, counseling clients in the healthcare, food, medical devices and pharmaceutical industries and representing them before German and European courts.
In all these areas, our lawyers are able to handle complex cross-border matters, leveraging King Spalding’s capabilities within Germany, Europe and across the world.
The 2020/2021 edition of the German legal directory JUVE Handbook ranked the team’s performance in investment funds, real estate, transactional tax, dispute resolution, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, and food law.
