Comment: In company succession and trusts, Noerr reaffirmed its role as one of the leading firms thanks to good ties in the high-end Mittelstand and in traditional wealth. Noerr saw a rise in demand for tax litigation work, where it is frequently active in high-profile cases, e.g. in the first so-called “Goldfinger” decision concerning deliberate book losses. The growth in activity was reflected in the addition of experienced lawyers to the team.
