Comment: A recommended firm for corporate litigation which is primarily perceived for its banking and capital markets expertise, where it boasts a remarkable track record. An internal specialization has now established itself between the two offices: in Düsseldorf, banking disputes have always constituted a large proportion of advice. The Munich partners, on the other hand, have developed a knack for underpinning their knowledge in shareholder disputes and D&O liability matters in the market alongside large cases in this field, e.g. the HRE proceedings under the Capital Markets Test Case Act. The fact that a lateral recruit moved to Düsseldorf from WTS Legal in the way of banking regulatory specialist Dr. Thorsten Voß, who also boasts experience in capital market compliance and white collar crime alongside his focus on banking and banking regulatory law, may give the practice an even greater boost. The recent dispute at Strabag turned out to be a highlight in terms of advice, where Sernetz was active on behalf of minority shareholder Sparta.
Recommended: Prof. Dr. Frank Schäfer, Dr. Manfred Wolf, Dr. Andreas Höder (“competent and professional”, client on both), Dr. Fabian Dietz-Vellmer, Dr. Helge Großerichter.
