Comment: The respected employment practice of this ?Frankfurt firm around Dr. Sven Tischendorf continued its cautious growth strategy undeterred: it named an experienced lawyer equity partner and thus now has two partners specializing in company pensions, although competitors like Freshfields and Maat enjoy stronger visibility. This legally complex issue currently plays a major role in company acquisitions and in the restructuring of company pension models. ACT has an asset in its outstanding contacts among PE investors, e.g. Veltec, who are a source of much work in an array of sectors. The firm also made strides internationally thanks to the formalized ACT Alliance, which may open up new perspectives for the employment lawyers too.
Development potential: Advice at ACT is very partner-centric. More associates would allow it to operate with a higher leverage in transactional advice.
Recommended: Dr. Sven Tischendorf.
Practice: All-round advice to predominantly Mittelstand clients, increasingly corporates. Stand-alone ongoing advice and litigation, as well as project activity (incl. restructuring). Also company pensions. Transactional advice. (5 equity partners, 2 salary partners, 1 associate)
Clients: ?? Veltec on supply of temporary workers; Kelvion on restructuring company pensions; CBRE on implementing software; Ima Group of Companies on restructuring; Douglas on staff cuts.
