JUVE Awards 2016: Hengeler Mueller is "Law Firm of the Year" for Private Equity & Venture Capital

28. October 2016

On Thursday, Hengeler Mueller was awarded “Law Firm of the Year” in the category “Private Equity & Venture Capital” by JUVE Verlag at the thirteenth JUVE Award ceremony at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt.

The JUVE editorial team in particular highlighted the “wide phalanx of strong partners” at Hengeler Mueller and the deepened relations to leading private equity firms.

Hengeler Mueller was involved in the largest and most important PE-transactions in Germany over the last years and advised PE-acquisition and sales processes on behalf of PE-firms as well as corporates. Recently, Hengeler Mueller advised, inter alia, KKR on the acquisition of Airbus’ Defence Electronics business – „a complex cross-border deal with comprehensive regulatory aspects, within the context of which it was by no means certain that KKR would prevail” mentioned the JUVE editorial team.

Hengeler Mueller has strong private equity teams at all of its German offices as well as in London, UK. The practice area was strengthened once again in 2016: Andreas Hoger, Corporate/M&A and Private Equity specialist became partner in the Frankfurt office at the beginning of the year.
