WHITE & CASE

Comment: Like competitor Clifford Chance, this respected employment practice is embedded within the firm as a whole. Partner Röger has sharpened the practice’s profile following substantial staff upheaval. The Hamburg team was busy with referrals from the ?energy practice, e.g. for EWE, and is often brought in by the W&C insolvency practice for restructuring work: the team earned recognition in the headline-making Air Berlin restructuring, which has now come to an end.
Strengths: Transaction-related employment, close ties to the corporate rescue practice.
Recommended: Hendrik Röger (“has successfully broadened the practice within the possible framework”, competitor).
Practice: Transaction-related employment and close ties to the restructuring practice in Hamburg. Regular advice as well as project work incl. restructuring and staff cuts. (2 partners, 5 associates)
Clients: ?? Air Berlin Group on restructuring; Aixtron on takeover by Grand Chip Investment; Digital Realty Germany; Cologne/Bonn Airport supervisory board regarding directors’ pay.
