Meilicke Hoffmann & Partner

Comment: A respected firm in corporate litigation that often crops up in proceedings as the adversary to large firms. The firm specializes in representing minority shareholders, with Heidel repeatedly causing a sensation in complicated cases – at present for example in the Strabag case, where he is working closely together with an auditing company. Besides this, the firm is often found by the side of Mittelstand companies or high-net-worth individuals in shareholder disputes. In terms of D&O liability suits, MH&P is sometimes seen representing companies or members of decision-making bodies appearing as defendants.
Strengths: Highly experienced in special audits.
Development potential: The generation change continues to pose a challenge to the medium-sized firm, as reflected by the fact that no strong young partners are visible in the market alongside the renowned Heidel.
Recommended: Dr. Thomas Heidel.
Practice: Proceedings and shareholder disputes concerning stock corporation law primarily for minority shareholders, family businesses and high-net-worth individuals; class actions under capital markets law; also insolvency disputes and D&O liability claims. (10 partners, 1 associate)
