Comment: This highly recommended practice for customs and trade combines different areas of law in an impressive way. One example is a provider of heating and climate control technology for which the team developed a compliance system. Munich partner Ayad, who advises on the automotive sector, is building a dynamic connection to the ?distribution practice. A large part of the customs and trade work is now based at the Brussels office, where a team around Schöning advises on export control. Many large international cases from HL offices abroad end up there, e.g. a US conglomerate, which was advised by an HL team of Brussels and Washington lawyers on possible violations of the boycot ban. In customs issues, the team is supported by the Munich ?tax practice.
Strengths: Advice at the interface with ?antitrust, ?M&A and ?compliance. Close contacts to the automotive sector, engineering, industrial construction and technology.
Recommended: Dr. Falk Schöning (antitrust), Dr. Patrick Ayad (distribution).
Practice: A wide-ranging practice with particular expertise in export and investment controls, compliance, automotive. Highly international projects, incl. M&A. (2 partners, 1 counsel, 5 associates)
Clients: ?? Arconic on technology transfer; BDSV (federal association of German steel recycling and waste disposal companies) on export control in the armaments sector; Concardis on compliance in monetary transactions with Iran; ongoing: Nissan, Daimler.
