Comment: This solid antitrust practice is respected in the market thanks to its broad approach. In addition to long-term experience in merger controls, cartel cases, and compliance investigations, the team is increasingly active in damages suits; Velte has a lot of experience in this area and a new partner from Hamburg is increasingly active there now that his specialty of energy antitrust has begun to stagnate somewhat. The practice specializes in the automotive branch, where distribution expert Siegert is well known.
Strengths: Distribution antitrust expertise (Hamburg and Munich).
Recommended: Dr. Rainer Velte (“very good”, client), Dr. Frederik Wiemer (“a true expert in antitrust law”, competitor), Dr. Reinhard Siegert (“expert lawyer, accurate”, competitor).
Practice: Focus on ?distribution and merger controls. Increasingly active in cartel cases, compliance, damages claims. (4 equity partners, 2 salary partners, 4 associates)
Clients: ?? Thalia/Weltbild/Hugendubel on cooperation with Tolino; state of Hessen in various price abuse proceedings; SAF Holland on damages claims against roller-bearing manufacturers; Netto ApS on purchasing cooperation with 5 partners; Sodecia on purchase of Kemmerich.
