Herbert Smith Freehills

Comment: This firm respected in antitrust is having more and more success positioning itself in the market. It has become a regular advisor to Rewe and represents the company in various disputes. International connections are strong, as seen in the fact that the team became an advisor to a Chinese investor via the China practice, which led to a further instruction in the dispute over auto supplier Grammer. The same is true of a cross-border series of proceedings, where HSF is defending a roller-bearing cartel member against massive damages claims.
Recommended: Dr. Michael Dietrich (“pragmatic, reliable, a hard worker”, client; “a really good advisor”, competitor).
