Our firm’s third German office is based in Munich, the Bavarian capital. One of the most commercially influential centers in Europe, Munich is second only to Frankfurt as a German financial hub.
Munich has developed into a pivotal axis for industry resulting from its growing reputation in the high-tech sector. Our Munich office complements the K&L Gates offices in Berlin and Frankfurt.
The focal points of our Munich office are our investment management and procurement and portfolio management practices. Our team also has extensive experience in both M&A transactions within the industrial market and in private equity. An additional focus of its work is on corporate law for German and international corporations.
Our intellectual property litigation and patent law practices also play important roles in light of the implementation of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) Agreement to enforce European patents across Europe.
