Mayer Brown

Comment: This respected firm covers a broad spectrum. The practice around Schmidt, who is co-leader of the worldwide practice, has made progress in international integration. This, along with experience in the chemical sector, e.g. for Albemarle, earned the antitrust team a coveted place on BASF's international panel. There are still plans to build up antitrust competence at one of the German offices but MB is also providing long-term advice to some German companies such as Benteler from Brussels.
Strengths: Technology sector.
Recommended: Dr. Jens Schmidt (“quick reaction time, very hands-on”, client; “I work regularly with him and it's always pleasant”, competitor).
Practice: Focuses on merger controls, compliance, and abuse proceedings. Sectors: technology, chemistry, energy. (1 equity partner, 4 associates)
Clients: ?? Star Capital on sale of Blohm + Voss; a group of mills, incl. Engelke Große Mühle, on defense against damages claims (public knowledge); regular advice to Dohle (“Hit” markets), Benteler, Dual Specialty on insurable antitrust risks in transactions; Tui Ventures on information exchange and compliance for share in tech provider Peakwork; Marvell Semiconductor on EU complaint against Qualcomm.
